Pimlico Race Course is a thoroughbred horse racetrack in Baltimore, Maryland, most famous for hosting the Preakness Stakes. English settlers in the 1660s named the area in honor of Olde Ben Pimlico's Tavern in London, England. The racetrack is nicknamed "Old Hilltop" after a small rise in the infield that became a favorite gathering place for thoroughbred trainers and race enthusiasts. Due to problems in early movie and television recording of the races, the infield hill was removed in 1938.
Racing in Pimlico survived a 1910 anti-gambling movement that swept the country, prohibiting the sport everywhere, except in Maryland and Kentucky. Colonel Matt Winn of Churchill Downs is alleged to have credited Pimlico’s Billy Riggs as the savior of eastern racing at this time. It was Riggs’ use of the less-sinful “French Pools,” or pari-mutuel machines, in 1913 as opposed to the controversial bookmakers and their blackboards, that preserved racing at Pimlico during this turbulent time in racing. A new era was born at Pimlico, which later became the first racetrack in the country to utilize an electric starting gate.
The track has a one-mile dirt oval, surrounding a seven-furlong turf oval. There are stables for about 1,000 horses. Pimlico's capacity, including the infield, is over 120,000 people.
