Saturday June 8th is Closing Day at Pimlico. There’s just two more live racing days left on the Old HIlltop calendar in 2013. The final Fan Friday (June 7th) and Saturday which is also Belmont Stakes Day. So if you haven’t been to Pimlico for the exciting chase scenes during the 36 day meet, time is running out. Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate and good weather will continue to shine down on Baltimore’s only horse race track.
Frankie Lovato’s JockeyWorld.org racing term of the day is #153… “Horse”
