The 12 Maryland Million races Oct. 9 at Pimlico have attracted 170 pre-entries, including Presidentialaffair, a 5-year-old son of Not For Love who will likely be favored in the $200,000 Maryland Million Classic.

Final entries will be taken and post positions drawn Wednesday for the series for horses sired by Maryland stallions.

Among the pre-entries are 16 in the $100,000 Turf Sprint, which will be run for the first time. One of the most festive days of racing in the state, the Maryland Million is the third largest in terms of wagering behind Preakness and Pimlico Special days.
