Churchill Downs this is not.
Keep those funky floral hats and mint juleps in Kentucky, we're at Pimlico, the frat house of horse racing: Beers. More beers. All-you-can-drink beers, in fact.The argument can be made that the Preakness is the biggest party in sports, and the second leg of the triple crown sure hasn't disappointed in years past with a huge chunk of the six-figure crowd getting sloshed.
The party's crazy. Too crazy, some contend. Yet, the signs of it slowing down don't seem to be stopping anytime soon, especially when organizers invite Wiz Khalifa—ever heard the chorus of "Young, Wild and Free"?—to take the stage and roll out the red carpet for a pot-bellied centaur named "Kegasus".
You can't make this stuff up. Just check out the photos.
