Contestants in a Hot Body contest enjoy the Baltimore atmosphere on Preakness Day.
A mixture of sunny skies and temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 80s has created a packed house at Pimlico Race Course for the 129th running of the Preakness Stakes (gr. I).

The packed house has made Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Smarty Jones the 1-5 favorite.

An infield full of college students from the Northeast are sporting Smarty Jones t-shirts and in the corporate village, just steps away from the infamous Pimlico infield, ladies in hats and men in ties are feasting on crab cakes and sipping champagne.
