The second leg of the triple crown is the Preakness. I feel like this is the one that gets the least attention, but we had a blast!!
My friends, Amanda and Reba, met me super early to make the trek from New York City to Baltimore. We took a bus down and then managed to pretty easily navigate our way to Pimlico via public transit. It was a long journey, but we were all smiles once we arrived at our grandstand seats!
We had fun watching the early races and even winning a few dollars here and there, too! We had great seats in the shade which was awesome on a hot day at the track! Our seats were just a tad before the finish line for the Preakness race so that was really neat! I got a great picture of the horses on the final stretch. Yay!
After the main race, we ventured down closer to the track and soaked up a little sun before we headed back toward the train station to catch the Amtrak back to NYC.
And, of course, the day wouldn't be complete without a Black Eyed Susan! Such a fun day full of lots of wonderful memories!!
My pick to win the race tomorrow is Mylute. Who do you think will win? Are you cheering for the favorite - Orb - in order for there to be a potential Triple Crown winner this year?
