We have been coming to Pimlico for 29 years. As others have described, it is getting older and needs some TCL. What we noticed on this visit is that the folks working inside were very nice and willing to go the extra mile for their guests. Very personable and interested in helping us have a great day! We did notice tables and "stuff" lying about which should have been put away for race day however.
The blackeyed susans this year were absolutely terrible, and we were offered a sample thank you very much!!! Thank goodness they would make a different drink in the special glass so we were not forced to drink that mixture. What were they thinking? Bring back the Brass Monkeys......
We sit on the track and enjoy talking with the horse hands and feeding the quarter horses carrots. It really helps put the day into perspective for our group. We are very down to earth and come for the fun of the race and one another's company, not necessarily the condition of Pimlico.
Would recommend a visit for the Preakness to everyone, it's a great day.
