Hastings Racecourse hosts its first holiday racing card of the 2013 Thoroughbred season as British Columbians celebrate Victoria Day on Monday, May 20.

Two $50K stakes co-feature the Victoria Day eight-race card:

• the Strawberry Morn for fillies & mares, 3-years-old & up
• the John Longden 6000 for 3-year-olds & up

Monday’s races begin at 1:50 p.m., the same start time for the seven-race cards at Hastings on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday is Preakness Day when Kentucky Derby winner Orb pursues the second jewel of racing’s Triple Crown from Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Hastings will show the 138th running of the Preakness via simulcast at 3:20 p.m.
