Default Headed to the Races

My wife and I will be going to Pimlico for the Preakness Stakes and I'm looking on some information on what to expect. I usually bet on the dogs, this will be my second time betting on horses. This will be my first time going to a Triple Crown race, what should I expect as far as the environment? We purchased the Mug Club Top of the Stretch tickets, was this a good choice? What about transportation to and from the track, we are staying at the Inner Harbor? We got Mug Club so don't want to be doing any driving. Any other tips you could throw at me would be greatly appreciated.

I am or was a dog racing guy. That is until the idiots of this state said it was cruel to the dogs and voted to ban it.

A couple of thousand people lost their jobs and MANY of the dogs who were not top level were put down.

All I can say is have fun!!
