As it has done since 1996, the Postal Service will open a temporary station at Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course the week of the Preakness Stakes, slated for Saturday, May 18.

The station will offer special Preakness cancellations on any item bearing first-class postage.

Bev Strauss, co-founder and executive director of MidAtlantic Horse Rescue, was named honorary postmaster for the event.

The Chesapeake City, MD, nonprofit has rescued more than 2,600 retired racehorses bound for slaughter since its founding in 2002.

The Preakness Stakes is the second jewel in the Triple Crown, a series of races for 3-year-old thoroughbreds that begins with the Kentucky Derby and wraps up with the Belmont Stakes.
