Sunrise at Old Hilltop, an event which offers fans a chance to take a behind-the-scenes walking tour of Pimlico Race Course, will once again be part of the Preakness week lineup in 2024, it was announced via presser Friday.

Admission is free to the tours–which run on a first-come, first-served basis between 6:00 and 9:00 a.m. from Tuesday, May 14 through Friday, May 17–and patrons can sign up at the registration tent on the track apron. It will not be required to register ahead of time in order to take a tour.

In addition to enjoying the sunrise, fans will watch horses work on the track before meeting them up close; meet and greet horsemen; and learn some Preakness history. Tours begin with a jockey demonstration and stops along the way include the jockeys’ room, the Pimlico stakes barn, and a visit to the track blacksmith, concluding inside the grandstand for a discussion on aftercare with representatives from Beyond The Wire, the Thoroughbred Makeover Project, and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.

Parking for the Sunrise at Old Hilltop tours is in the Rogers Avenue lot at the intersection of Northern Parkway and Woodcrest Avenue. Fans are encouraged to arrive early as spots fill up quickly. The lot will be closed and locked promptly at 10:00 a.m. More information can be found on the Preakness website.
