Early Morning Free Tours at Pimlico

Updated: Thursday, May 15 2014, 11:55 AM EDT

It's Preakness week, and before the second leg of the Triple Crown race this Saturday, race enthusiasts can see the horses up close and personal. It's a rare chance to hang out with a few 4-legged stars in Baltimore.

Early morning behind the scenes tours are being offered for free at Pimlico from 6 till 9 during the countdown to race day.

"We encourage people to come early because they really do fill up quickly," Fran Burns of Pimlico Sunrise Tours said. "Wear your walking shoes."

The tour takes participants from the grandstand to the stables and nothing is off-limits, even the most popular star of Preakness - California Chrome - can be seen.

The tours are an annual event that seems to grow every year but event organizers are noting that this year parking has changed. Tour participants will need to park on Rogers and Woodcrest.
