So Pimlico management has announced that despite organized Preakness boycotts at college campuses throughout Maryland, Virginia and Delaware; and countless scathing editorials and columns they are going to keep their infield policy of not allowing fans to bring in beer and charge them $60 admission at the Preakness next year.
Churchill Downs seems to have few problems with their infield crowd, but I guess partiers in Maryland are more wild, drunken and violent.
Nearly every week of the year, NASCAR tracks across america hold similar accomodations but with much larger crowds, much more beer and for days at a time before their races. But Pimlico can't do it for the Preakness.
Pimlico is talking about the positive feedback from the decision.
