2024 Preakness Stakes Horse Owners (Do Any Celebrities Own Horses in this Year's Race?)

Eight horses are slated to line up for the Preakness Stakes on Saturday, May 18, at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.

The second jewel of the Triple Crown, the $2 million Preakness features three horses coming back two weeks after the Kentucky Derby and, after the Wednesday scratch of morning-line favorite Muth, five new faces trying to make their mark.

The entrants who press on from Churchill Downs’ most famous race include Kentucky Derby-winning horse Mystik Dan, the Kenny McPeek trainee who prevailed by a nose under a nifty rail ride by Brian Hernandez, Jr.

However, it is also exciting to find out who owns each horse in the Preakness Stakes. After all, there are many ways to own a horse, and many people who get into the thrill of horse ownership. Some years, Preakness Stakes horses are owned by famous people in other corners of pop culture, such as athletes, singers, or actors. In other years, there may not be celebrities, but the owners may be either repeat Preakness Stakes winners or even groups of regular, everyday people trying to shine at the top level of horse racing.

Naturally, you can bet on which horse will win the Preakness Stakes at FanDuel Racing. Discover exciting 2024 Preakness Stakes promos to wager on FanDuel Racing and FanDuel Sportsbook and get up to $20 back on your bet as well as $10 back as wagering credit when betting on the Black-Eyed Susan starting May 17th!

New users are included in the excitement with a chance to get your first win wager on a single horse in any race at any track up to $500 back if you lose.

Famous Horse Owners in the 2024 Preakness Stakes

None of the individual owners of Preakness horses in 2024 are particularly famous outside of the world of horse racing: they are not owned by sports stars, actors, singers, or other people well known in broader pop culture.

However, if you have paid close attention to horse racing over the years, even just the Preakness Stakes, you will recognize some of these owners. Stonestreet Stables, one of the co-owners of both Tuscan Gold and Imagination, has co-owned three Preakness winners already: Curlin in 2007, Rachel Alexandra in 2009, and National Treasure in 2023.

Stonestreet Stables is not the only co-owner of National Treasure who is back in the hunt in 2024. SF Racing, Starlight Racing, Madaket Stables, Robert E. Masterson, Waves Edge Capital, and Catherine Donovan were all in the ownership group for National Treasure last year and hope to get back in the winners’ circle this year with Imagination.

Starlight Racing was also part of the ownership group behind 2018 Preakness Stakes winner Justify, who went on to take the Belmont Stakes and the 13th-ever Triple Crown three weeks later at Belmont Park.

William H. Lawrence, one of the co-owners of Tuscan Gold along with Stonestreet Stables, is also no stranger to the Preakness Stakes winners’ circle. He owned Cloud Computing in partnership with Klaravich Stables. Cloud Computing won the middle jewel of the Triple Crown series in 2017 for trainer Chad Brown, who also conditions Tuscan Gold.

The owner of Seize the Grey, MyRacehorse, is also well-known in horse racing circles, and you may even own or know someone who owns a horse through them. MyRacehorse is a microshare syndicate that allows large groups of horse racing fans to buy into horses, and over 2,000 people have ownership interests in Seize the Grey.

Though MyRacehorse has not won the Preakness Stakes yet, one of their syndicates co-owned 2020 Kentucky Derby winner Authentic, who also ran a good second in the Preakness Stakes behind Swiss Skydiver. That partnership also included Madaket Stables, part of the group behind Imagination.
