Lynda O'Dea made her reputation in sports marketing as the "Queen of the Sports Palaces" at Maryland's thoroughbred racetracks and for throwing elaborate and fun parties at the state's big horse races.She has had waiters on roller skates and dinner for 1,000 people on a Norweigian cruise ship. And she has used Baltimore backdrops from the Dundalk Marine Terminal to the Peabody Conservatory as props for her racetrack entertaining.But since the death of her mentor and companion, Frank De Francis, three years ago, she has kept a low profile at the track, serving mostly as a social consultant, coordinating such events as the tented village in the infield for the Preakness and Maryland Million and activities for the International Turf Festival.

Appearances deceive.Look at Lynda O'Dea and it's easy to see only the glamour. The long blond hair falling softly around her shoulders. The diamond ring sparkling on her right hand. The stride as graceful as any prize thoroughbred's.To some degree, that's been Ms. O'Dea's forte over the last five years -- selling the glamour and excitement of Maryland horse racing. As vice president of marketing at Laurel and Pimlico race courses, she created glorious casinolike Sports Palaces, surrounded races with lavish special events and polished up the image of the Preakness by introducing a now legendary lawn party for corporate high rollers.

IF WE ARE KNOWN by the company we keep, Lynda O'Dea is well-known indeed. That was evident last Thursday when hundreds of prominent Baltimoreans arrived at the Hyatt Regency for a tribute to her which benefited the Maryland Lupus Foundation. For many of the guests, all they needed was yet another dinner to attend, but they were there because of their association with and affection for O'Dea. Can you imagine the social schedule of a Jim McKay or Lt. Gov. Mickey Steinberg?Janet Bouton of the Lupus foundation said it best when describing what O'Dea's involvement with lupus had done for them.
