Morning rain

"During Preakness week, a horse walks around a drenched track at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland, May 15, 2012. The week leading up to the Preakness Stakes has been wet and rainy. Two inches of precipitation is expected between Tuesday and Wednesday morning."

This week I am out at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Md., covering all leading up to the Preakness Stakes.

So far, not many horses have arrived aside from the Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another. While he was early into town last week, he is taking it slow because of the wet weather Baltimore has had. Not much, if at all, track time yet.

After his morning walk, I decided to make the pilgrimage up to the roof to try and get a picture of the wet conditions that is keeping the Preakness contenders off the course. Once up there, I realized there wasn't much going on, so I waited for a random horse to make its way by.

Hopefully weather will clear before Saturday, otherwise, it may take me a few weeks to dry out.
