Racing fans, if you're in Maryland and plan on attending tomorrow's Maryland Strong Day Saturday at Pimlico Race Course, then you're in for a real treat!
Not only will fans get to enjoy a stacked 10-race card, which features four Maryland-bred stakes with purses totaling $300K, but they can even take home a piece of the prestigious Preakness Stakes with them.
Free Preakness Stakes gift items will be available for those attending the races. This was announced by the Maryland Jockeyclub from their home website. The merchandise ranges from commemorative glass, T-shirt, coffee mug, cap, luggage tag, shot glass or pop socket for cell phones — at no charge.
The merchandise will be available in the grandstand lobby. Also, fans can donate to Beyond the Wire Maryland Thoroughbred Aftercare of Permanently Disabled Jockeys funds.
On top of celebrating the Preakness with a gift-giveaway, hungry fans will be treated to a special menu including Old Bay grilled chicken sandwich and Maryland-style pit turkey and ham, plus drink specials including the Black-Eyed Susan.
