2007 Preakness Miscellaneous Photos

Date: 05/21/2007

There was lots going on at Pimlico on Preakness day other than the races. There were special tributes to Barbaro, parachute jumps, the Thunderbirds flying over, the Budweiser Clydesdales, and more. Here is a selection of photos from the day for your enjoyment. Just click the smaller one to see a bigger version.

One of the paratroopers who performed for the crownd carried down the Barbaro silks flag that was presented to Jacksons in one of the earlier photos. Because of the wind, the paratroopers had more problems than usual on Preakness day. The one carrying the Barbaro flag landed in the infield as did an earlier one.
This paratrooper managed to push off the outer rail of the turf course so he landed correctly on the grass. The horses break from the gate for the William Donald Schaefer Handicap on Preakness day.
