To promote this year's 139th running of the Preakness, Maryland Racing smartly teamed up with Ravens kicker Justin Tucker because ... well, why not?

Tucker has quickly ascended as a fan favorite in Baltimore. From his clutch kicking ways to his off-field personality, fans can identify with the budding star. And therefore, it adds an appeal for local advertisers — Maryland Racing not excluded.

Here's the promotional video, with Tucker doing various trick shots throughout Pimlico Race Course.

Tucker certainly made a mess, though I'm sure he had help cleaning it all up off camera.

But most importantly, this promotion has a prize for fans to win, which is four tickets to this year's Preakness race.

Watch the video and maybe you and three friends will enjoy this year's race and festivities at Pimlico.
