Columbia, MD (RestaurantNews.com) The Triple Crown is approaching, and once again, The Greene Turtle, sports bar and grille franchise and official partner of Preakness 146, is joining with 1/ST, the owners of the legendary race, to host Preakness watch parties at 14 participating locations on race day, May 15.

All premium spirit doubles
The Watermelon Mule

On race day, guests whose racehorse cards correspond with the winning horse’s number will be entered into a drawing for the grand prize of a VIP experience for two at Preakness 147 in 2022. Guests can collect as many cards as they want, even on race day, to increase their odds of winning.
Even guests without winning racehorse cards won’t leave empty-handed, with each participating Greene Turtle restaurant offering Preakness co-branded merch while supplies last on race day. Guests who collect cards before race day but are unable to visit a participating Greene Turtle location on May 15 can bring their cards back to the restaurant anytime between May 16 and May 31 for a free order of the brand’s new Crabby Rinds menu item.
