Which factor has most to do with the success of the Preakness?
9.5-furlong distance is more appropriate for North American 3YOs
14-horse limit reduces traffic issues, makes race more fair
Kentucky Derby filters out many of the "pretenders"
Pimlico's location, surface, and stakes barn create a neutral playing field
Being 2 weeks later than the Derby gives Preakness runners more time to develop
