Celebrations at Preakness' Infield are Nothing Short of a Success'

Updated: Monday, May 20 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

The colts and cocktails were the focus of the Preakness infield today. FOX45’s Paul Gessler was among the crowd of rave revelers inside the rails at Pimlico today.

“In the infield, it’s obviously a little rowdy,” said Sarah Lepley.

Attendance at Pimlico was just north of 117 thousand people, but not all were racing fans. Pitbull was the headliner at the Preakness Infield Party that went from sun-up to sun-down.

“There’s so many people here. If it was nicer out, it’d be much better,” said Mason Bailey.

In the end, the overwhelming favorite, Orb, did not win - but the crowds certainly did.

“Let’s say celebratory. A little excessive, but still a good, drunken, safe time,” said Scott Jonas.
