Preakness, New Jersey
Preakness (pronounced Prake-ness) is a section of Wayne located in Passaic County, New Jersey, United States.
The colt Preakness, for whom the Preakness Stakes Thoroughbred horse race at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland is named, was owned by Milton H. Sanford's Preakness Stables located at the corner of Valley Road and Preakness Avenue.
The name itself was said to have come from the Native American name Pra-qua-les for "Quail Woods" in the area.
