Saturday Wrap Up.

Saturday was a perfect spring day in Baltimore and 8,997 people showed up at Pimlico to enjoy the Spring Festival of Racing. The highlight of the card, the Tesio Stakes had odds-on local favorite Etude fall back out of the money, and jockey Ramon Dominguez brought Xchanger across the line first in the 1-1/8 mile race. Xchanger is trained by Marc Shuman, who also saddled two other stakes winners on the 11-race Pimlico card. Shuman scored with Talent Search in the Jim McKay Sprint and My Girlie in the Northview Stallion Station Stakes.

Is that a good number of people for an opening day? My interest is to get people to the tracks.

Libby,

9000 people is an OK number for opening day at Pimlico. 20 years ago they would have almost 9k on every Saturday.
