 Crown's Second Jewel: Lookin at Lucky


6:30 PM SAT 5.15.2010 Congratulations to the owner and jockey of Lookin At Lucky for being victorious in the 2010 Preakness Stakes. The smashing blue skies made for a photo finish of a superb day, helped by lighter winds and temperatures in the mid 70's as projected by Central Maryland Forecaster Greg J. Thanks to all our forecasters and readers for the fun of covering this unique tradition the past few days. Preak On!

All-American Day in Maryland

11:30 AM SAT 5.15.2010
Glorious sunshine and moderate breezes will make for a wonderful day to celebrate the most exciting two minutes in Maryland sports. An early streak of luck has already set for today's wagers, as much improved conditions look to following last night's storms. By today's post time of 6:18 PM EDT at Pimlico Race Course in Montgomery County, MD, despite breezes of 10-15 mph, the 74 F and  sunshine will make you feel so nice, it won't matter if you don't win, place or show in the 135th Preakness Stakes! Follow race forecast updates on our Central MD Facebook page.

Although we have our preak on today for what some consider to be Baltimore's Mardi Gras, there's much more history and revelry than just the edgier infieldfest . This is an gallant event steeped in tradition which is also promenade of who's who across the Mid-Atlantic region. It is a privilege  for the Foot's Forecast Central Maryland Team to showcase some nice weather in welcoming all our readers to a fine slice of Americana right here in Charm City.

I GOT THE HORSE RIGHT HERE. Remember the fun opening tune "Fugue for Tinhorns" from Guys and Dolls? Since today's weather is clear, is your horse the one who "can do?" If so, vote on our poll.  Mr. Foot of course is rooting for "Schoolyard Dreams"  followed by Lookin At Lucky, with Super Saver for good measure. What's your pick? Note: No member or affiliate of the Forecast Team is using reader votes to place bets of any kind for today's race, nor do we have any financial interest from or for the event.
