Saturday at Pimlico

Tomorrow is the Spring Festival of Racing at Pimlico. Five added-money races will be on the card, highlighted by the $125,000 Federico Tesio. The winner of the Tesio is usually pointed to run in the Preakness. This year we will be rooting for hometown favorite Etude. In addition to the Tesio, the following added money races are:
- $125,000 Northview Stallion Stakes for fillies and mares
- $125,000 Maryland Stallion Station Stakes for 3-year-olds
- $95,000 Jim McKay Sprint for 3-year-olds and up
- $55,000 Old Hilltop Overnight Stakes for 3-year-olds and up.
A sixth added money race, the $125,000 Country Life Farm Stakes was not carded becasue it had only four entries. (This blows my mind?????).

I encourage all my friends locally to get out to "Old Hilltop" tomorrow for these races. It will be seventy-five degrees, and a great day of racing. Maryland can use every fan possible in the grandstands, as the Tesio will be broadcast on ESPN.
