The Preakness Freaks

imageLast Saturday, we attended the 133rd Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Track in Baltimore, Maryland. Along with writer John Clarke Jr. (see full report here), we observed, reported, mixed, mingled and sampled Black-Eyed Susans. It was hard not to feel we had entered an alternate universe (think The Wire meets National Velvet). The differences between the two worlds of a Triple Crown horse race and the surrounding circus were staggering. Hit the jump for our video trip through the “Freakness,” including local wisdom, impromptu interpretive dance, jockey underwear issues, and shopping cart races.
