PIMLICO STORMED OUT

Pimlico Press Staff – A severe weather system passing through the area, producing heavy rain and multiple lighting strikes, forced the cancellation of Saturday’s live race program at historic Pimlico Race Course.

            Forecast to bring wind gusts up to 60 mph and quarter-size hail, the storm rolled in shortly before Saturday’s fifth race and, following a delay, the decision was made to cancel racing out of safety concerns for horses, horsemen and fans.

            Live racing is scheduled to return to Pimlico with a seven-race program Sunday, starting at 12:40 p.m.

The feature comes in Race 6, a stakes-quality optional claiming allowance sprinting six furlongs and featuring the return of multiple stakes-winning 3-year-old Kenny Had a Notion in his first race against older horses. Among the competition are fellow stakes winners Eastern Bay and Arthur’s Hope and stakes-placed Wondrwherecraigis.
