SPORT OF KINGS … Thoroughbred racing has since Colonial times been a popular Maryland sport,
and in the Preakness, run annually at Pimlico, it reaches one of its national peaks.
This race is one of the Triple Crown series, the others being the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes.
The Preakness was first run in 1873.

Coming soon ... the Originals Gallery
All photographs in the Originals Gallery were printed by A. Aubrey Bodine in his Sunpapers darkroom.
These are truly "vintage" photographs - all printed before 1970.
Many of the originals were world travelers, exhibited in Salon competitions which
were held by camera clubs in American and around the world.
