Went to Pimlico and was amazed at how run down, dirty and disgusting the track has become. Not only has it deteriorated but the people working there are rude and unfriendly. It is amazing how the state let this happen, and I am shocked they...More

Went to the preakness stakes and attended the infield fest....wishing I would have done this 20 years ago! LOL. The weather didn't help it was like a giant mud puddle, I'm over 40 and my next visit to Pimlico will not include the infield! Hahahaha
