Hi-ho, the Kentucky Derby, the “First Jewel” of the Triple Crown, of which the Preakness is the “Middle (and best) Jewel” is in Kentucky, but today here at Pimlico you can get a bet down and watch the race and win and get rich via the miracle of simulcast racing, wherein you watch your favorite bangtail on a big TV screen as it heads around the clubhouse turn, all the way down in “Old Kentucky” or “Kentucky: Unbridled Spirit,” or whatever good nickname there is for Kentucky, except you will be at “Old Hilltop,” right here in Baltimore, and you can smoke a cigar and get your liver prepped for Preakness.
