Pimlico_Oldhilltop

For those of you who don’t know, my beloved Pimlico is in danger of being shuttered forever. The venue is in need of some major renovations, and its owner (The Stronarch Group), Baltimore City, and the state of Maryland aren’t exactly sure what to do about it just yet, (although studies are being conducted). I’m[…]

Pimlico

Last Friday my husband and I went to Pimlico for the Black Eyed Susan Stakes. Unfortunately, we had some conflicts again this year and could not attend Preakness on Saturday. James was really ticked off because he suffers from FOMO (Fear of Missing Out!) and wanted to go and hang out with our friends who[…]

Get Your Preak On

Black Eyed Susan Day!

For those of you who don’t know, the Black Eyed Susan is basically the Preakness for the fillies. That means it’s girls-only and is run the Friday before. This year I was lucky enough to be able to attend both days – and had a blast!! Black Eyed Susan Day (BESD) is much more low[…]

My Preakness

For as long as I could remember, I wanted to attend the Preakness Stakes. As a little girl, I would get so excited just knowing that the Preakness was held in Baltimore – finally, my city could claim something great – something big! On the morning of the race, I would go outside and pick[…]
