Over the next few days, we’ll share some Preakness “behind the scenes” video with some of the folks who help make racing possible — but who don’t always get the credit they should for the work they do.

Last week, we shared the story of Jessica Lindsey, who, along with her pony Gray Horse, accompanied California Chrome during the Preakness post parade.

During the day, filmmaker Jeff Krulik caught up with Jessica and Gray Horse, and Jessica shared the pony’s special “outfit” for the day; he was all done up in California Chrome’s purple and green colors.

Jeff also chatted with track photographer Jerry Dzierwinski, who considers the ponies his buddies and makes sure they’re well fed with pleny of carrots.
