Lt. Governor Brown to Present Preakness Trophy
Updated: Friday, May 17 2013, 05:23 PM EDT
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will stand in for Gov. Martin O'Malley during the high-profile trophy presentation to the winner of the Preakness Stakes.
O'Malley's office announced Thursday that a family obligation on Saturday will keep the governor from attending the event for the first time since 2007.
Instead Brown, who kicked off his campaign for governor last week, will present the Woodlawn Vase to the winner on Saturday. The ceremony is usually included in television coverage of the race, which draws millions of viewers nationally.
The field of candidates seeking the Democratic nomination to succeed O'Malley is also expected to include Attorney General Doug Gansler, Montgomery County Delegate Heather Mizeur, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger.
A half-dozen Republicans are also considering a run for governor.
