    Preakness 2012 attendance could be among highest ever
    Baltimore Police say up to 50,000 people have shown up at Pimlico for the Preakness Stakes. The department expects about 112,000 people to come to the event by the time this evening's big race has been run. If the race hits that mark, it would be one...

    Jockey Club hopes Preakness 2011 will 'Be Legendary'
    A year after the Maryland Jockey Club encouraged Baltimore to get its “Preak” on with a feather-ruffling advertising campaign for last year’s Preakness party, event organizers are turning to a spokes-centaur named “Kegasus”...
  • Story of Woodlawn Vase has many twists — and some are even true

    Story of Woodlawn Vase has many twists — and some are even true
    Gunfire. Skullduggery. Bones in the attic. The story behind the story of the Preakness trophy reads like a great Southern novel. The Woodlawn Vase has its roots in pre-Civil War Kentucky. It was even buried there to keep it from falling into the wrong...

    It takes a team of artisans to make the trophies Preakness winners take home
    No one gets to take the Woodlawn Vase home anymore. Jeanne Murray Vanderbilt made sure of that in 1953 after her husband's horse, Native Dancer, won the Preakness by a neck. She was not going to be responsible for the three-foot-tall, 30 pound solid...

    Preakness leaving Pimlico? Not likely
    It may not be an entirely empty threat, but the specter of moving vans hauling the Preakness away is running on fumes. Not because Maryland's racing industry has found a mattress full of cash or because the public en masse has developed the urge to go to...
  • Preakness infield party still raucous, but tamer than years past

    Preakness infield party still raucous, but tamer than years past
    There were still drunken 20-somethings. Still crowds making a ruckus. And people throwing up after one too many beers. But this year — unlike at recent Preakness Stakes when infield crowds gained a reputation for debauchery and rowdy stunts like...
  • Dramatic win caps off well-attended Preakness

    Dramatic win caps off well-attended Preakness
    The largest crowd in Preakness Stakes history watched the thrilling victory of a horse that's now on a Triple Crown hunt, jammed to pop band Maroon 5 and basked under a Saturday sky whose only clouds were the wispy letters of an advertisement sprayed from...
  • Maryland horse racing has found stability, but must take steps to thrive

    Maryland horse racing has found stability, but must take steps to thrive
    Dale Capuano winced at the sight of the 10 or so people watching the horse race at Laurel Park as he walked from the paddock into the 3,000-seat grandstand. Most were familiar faces. Out on the track, his filly, Calcutta Cat, reeled from a rough break...
  • Thoroughbred racing industry misses racing-date deadline

    The thoroughbred industry missed Thursday's deadline to submit a long-term business plan to sustain the sport to the Maryland General Assembly. A state law enacted earlier this year to provide slot subsidies to the state's struggling racetracks called...
