Tom Chuckas , president and chief operating officer of the Maryland Jockey Club, said Saturday that he would like to see horse racing's Triple Crown events played out over two months, not five weeks. Speaking to reporters at Pimlico Race Course three hours before post time for the 139th Preakness, Chuckas reiterated his position that a longer recovery period for horses would better benefit them and business in general. "Look, I'm not anti-tradition. I have great respect for tradition.

Ticket sales for Saturday's 139th Preakness are running ahead of last year, as the event's past success and star power of featured musical acts allow organizers to curtail advertising. With the spotlight on the Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome and musical headliner Lorde, Maryland Jockey Club President Tom Chuckas said Monday that most seats outside the Pimlico Race Course infield are sold out, as they were last year at this time. He said sales are running about 2 percent higher than last year, when Orb, a horse with Maryland connections, won the Derby and was headed to the Preakness.

My witty neighbor Sebastian has a term for it: al desko. That gives it some much-needed panache, but in the end, it's still just you and your ham-and-swiss-on-rye, at your desk and on the job rather than out for a midday meal at a restaurant with friends or colleagues. Chalk it up as yet another sign of a dying civilization, but polls show that nearly 60 percent of workers lunch al desko these days. And that sad fact, I'm convinced, is why Baltimore's Ad Club is going to be celebrating its 100th anniversary next year as an exhibit at the Maryland Historical Society, rather than as a living, breathing and lunching group.

Maryland Jockey Club President Tom Chuckas said Saturday that the Preakness brand “has changed dramatically” in the last few years, citing an attendance bump in the infield celebration and increased security all around the racetrack.   “The crowd in the infield is up, and the wagers are coming in,” Chuckas said. “All in all, it's pretty much what we expected, and we'll continue to fine-tune it.”   Speaking with reporters just after the seventh race Saturday at Pimlico Race Cource, Chuckas acknowledged that the Jockey Club has sought to find a balance between catering to old-school horse racing fans and drawing in new crowds who could become racing enthusiasts.

It's a sun-splashed morning in rolling southern Anne Arundel County, and a cluster of old oaks and maples make a fine canopy for the 25 gentlemen gathered at the cottage they see as a shrine. Some wear seersucker blazers and boating shoes. Many sport neckties with their club's logo - a British flag and an American flag, their staffs crossed. Their laughter echoes off the clubhouse, a bungalow built 34 years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. "We have an ancient tradition - it never rains on meeting day at the Old South River Club," says Chris Wilson, a longtime member of the tiny Harwood society that calls itself "the oldest continuously operating social club in the English-speaking world.
