As Black-Eyed Susan day dawns in Baltimore, with a power-packed dozen race card stretching out in front of us, we’ll busy ourselves sharing the sights, sounds, and dollar signs of the day at Pimlico.

On this live blog, you can expect a potpourri: observations about the races, discussions of the scene, and analysis of the financial numbers.  Feel free to join the conversation!

And special thanks to ace photographer Laurie Asseo, whose photo of Orb this morning is our featured image!
