"Winner, winner, chicken dinner," Jim Molenari said loudly as the teller behind the glass betting booth handed over his winnings for the 10th race. Molenari, a fifth-grade teacher from Bucks County, Pa., had never done as well in his first 16 trips to the Pimlico as he did today. Going into the Preakness, he had a four-race winning streak. "All because of the lady in the pink hat," said Molenari, adding that he was about $100 in the black.   Molenari couldn’t recall her name, but he knew she was from Bermuda and had spent most of the day picking winners. Was she a handicapper or some sort of psychic?

As Preakness post time approached, some people in the infield had fallen asleep. Others were more feisty. An inebriated young man approached Ally Reid of Arlington, claiming that she had stolen his girlfriend’s hat. She explained that she was waiting in a line when someone put the hat on her head. The man tried to pick a fight with a guy nearby — a guy who was nearly a foot taller, twice his weight and all muscle. But Ryan Ellis would have none of it. “People out here, they drink alcohol and get intoxicated and fight.
