Get Your Preak On

The 135th running of the Preakness Stakes is May 15

In Maryland, we’re anticipating the 135th running of the Preakness Stakes at Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Course this Saturday. Events related to the Preakness have already begun.

WBAL(AM)’s Scott Wykoff has written several stories about Preakness preparation, and includes interviews with those who work along the backstretch about how they prep the track “Backstretch Brilliance” as well as about how the horses arrive for the “middle jewel” of the Triple Crown “Precious Preakness Cargo.”

I enjoyed covering the Preakness back on my on-air days and still follow it; and I can attest to how good the Black-Eyed Susan is.
