On Monday, the Maryland Jockey Club unveiled the logo for next year's Preakness, the 140th running of the middle jewel of horse racing's Triple Crown.
For the 16th straight year, the Leffler Agency designed the logo, according to a news release.
"Creating the 140th Preakness logo was its usual challenge in terms of building flexibility for everything from embroidered merchandise and painting on grass to use on HD television," Leffler Agency chief executive officer Heather Connellee said in the release. "Designer Laura Etter managed to capture the action of the horse running with the unique use of three block slides. Leffler Agency is always proud to create the logo for the Preakness Stakes, the largest Mid-Atlantic sporting event."
Next year's Preakness will take place May 16, 2015 at Pimlico Race Course. Tickets will go on sale and renewal invoices will be sent Oct. 1, according to the release. The renewal deadline is Jan. 16, 2015.
