Pictures from Pimlico

A few quick pics from the road, as we are in Baltimore for the Preakness Stakes! 

  
We had an amazing spot on the inside rail, thanks to a table in the Turfside Terrace. It made for intimate looks at the turf races.

  Black-eyed Susans – orange juice with vodka and Maker’s Mark? Something like that. These were served from a pre-made jug but they were still delicious so that says something about a successful recipe! The awesome glasses were only $10 with the drink – that’s a very economical price for such an iconic souvenir.

  
The start of the Black-Eyed Susan  Stakes. Everything was pink. Even the starting gate.

  
I brought along Ambition for the book signing event and sold out! Turning For Home was popular too. I was so lucky to be with Eliza McGraw, author of the new racing history Here Comes Exterminator! We had so much fun meeting fans and doing a little celebrity-spotting (trainers and jockeys edition).

  Crossing the course after the racing day ended. It was such a beautiful day of thoroughbreds and sport!
