Pimlico weekend

March 31, 2001

Triple Crown nominee Marciano headlines a field of eight for the $75,000 Private Terms Stakes at Pimlico Race Course today. The $60,000 Gala Lil Stakes tomorrow features Irving's Baby, winner of three stakes during the recently completed Laurel Park winter meeting. Both races are at 1 1/8 miles at Old Hilltop.

Today, the first 4,000 full paid admissions will receive a Pimlico T-shirt. Post time both days is 1:05 p.m. The Pimlico Pick 4 continues this weekend with a guaranteed net pool of $25,000. Marciano has been in the money six times in nine career starts.

The seven other 3 year-olds taking aim at Marciano include Maryland-breds Charlie's Cards and Ronnie's Hot Rod, both stakes winners at Laurel.

Six fillies and mares are expected to challenge Todd Pletcher-trained Irving's Baby tomorrow.
