Every year, Pimlico opens its gates to the public for Sunrise at Old Hilltop, when the staff gives 20 minute tours from 6 – 9 a.m., Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of Preakness Week. It is billed by Pimlico as, ” an insider’s perspective on racing during an escorted tour of the Preakness Stakes Barn.” For the last 15 years, former jockey and current horse owner Charlie Fenwick, who knows the track so well, has invited friends for a guided tour with his personal touch. This year, I joined him.
