Few people were walking around downtown Laurel Tuesday evening, but at Main Street Sports Grill, nearly every seat at the bar was taken for happy hour. Since April marks the start of Major League Baseball play, the multiple flat-screen televisions behind the bar were showing ESPN's highlights from games across the nation. However, come 7 p.m., ESPN would be replaced by coverage of two games, one featuring the Baltimore Orioles, and the other the Washington Nationals. Laurel is sandwiched between Baltimore and Washington, about a half-hour drive away from either city, and at Main Street Sports Grill, baseball loyalties were divided between the two teams.

And, as always, after the race, members of Maryland's country gentry went from casual race attire to fancy dress to attend the annual Hunt Cup Ball.The ball was held at Stouffer Harborplace Hotel and was a festive occasion for members of a Maryland racing family who owned, trained and rode the Hunt Cup winner, Ivory Poacher.Brothers Redmond and Jervis Finney are two of the owners; their cousin Ann Fenwick trained the horse; and the winning jockey, Sanna Neilson, is a niece.
