Preakness

Tim Lare of Hampstead came to his first Preakness in 1973, the same year Secretariat won the middle leg of the Triple Crown.  "I think he paid $2,80," Lare recalled Saturday.  Lare kept going to Pimlico for its big race every year until 2000, and stopped because of the rowdiness in the infield. He had tried the grandstand once, but didn't like it because "it was too crowded. " Carl Kemp, a friend of Lare's from Carroll County, had given up going in 1999, tired of what he called "ignorant" people who ruined the day with the drunken behavior.

The Preakness is the second race of the Triple Crown and it does not deserve to have another rowdy, drunken brawl that does nothing to contribute to the race or to the horse industry ("Trendy or tasteless?" March 30). Instead of attracting a group of people who have no interest in horses or racing, may I suggest several possibilities that will promote horses, the large and varied horse industry and the large and positive impact it has on the Maryland economy: Pony clubs; fox hunts; driving clubs; rescue farms; show jumping; handicap programs; Western; mounted police; draft horses; parade of breeds.

Some call it a brazen, drunken act of women's liberation. Others claim it's pure degradation. It's an annual ritual, a rite of passage, on the Preakness infield. Picture this: Blond-haired Jamie Morris hoists herself atop a set of broad shoulders, looks out across a muddy sea of T-shirt clad, beer-bonging twentysomethings and screams "wooooooo!" Then she lifts her head high and yanks up her gray top, answering the calls of "show us your [you-know-whats]!" The crowd closes in on the braless 18-year-old, spraying her with Bud Light and yelping with glee.
