  • 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

    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...
  • Kegasus says Preakness worship is not to blame for 'The Rapture'

    Kegasus says Preakness worship is not to blame for 'The Rapture'
    Great news, everyone. I tracked down Kegasus in his “man stall,” and after he made all the reporters on hand close their eyes and throw darts at a dartboard, he finally answered all the softball questions they had to throw at him. But here...
  • Preakness leaving Pimlico? Not likely

    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...

    Cordish can resume construction on Arundel Mills slots parlor
    The Cordish Cos. can resume work on what is expected to be the state's most lucrative slots parlor at Arundel Mills mall, after opponents withdrew a legal challenge that has delayed the project for several weeks. Opponents said the developer's promises...
  • Those Kegasus radio spots hit YouTube and I'm still confused

    Those Kegasus radio spots hit YouTube and I'm still confused
    I've had a day to wrap my head around the Maryland Jockey Club's new Preakness advertising campaign, "Be Legendary," and its spokes-centaur, Kegasus. I'm not offended by the beer-bellied, half-horse, half-man creature. I'm just confused. Maryland Jockey...
  • Coffee Companion -- 3/31

    Coffee Companion -- 3/31
    Each morning, Monday through Friday, I'll hook you up with some reading material to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday -- that way I'll have an excuse to do the same at the start of mine. Running it back:...

    Resume-builder: My interview with Preakness legend Kegasus
    Despite being in heavy demand, Kegasus, the spokes-centaur for the 2011 Preakness InfieldFest, took time out of his busy schedule to discuss his new gig with the Maryland Jockey Club. I'm not sure what it says about me that my schedule wasn't too busy...
