Who needs Kegasus when the Preakness infield party will have rappers Pitbull and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis headlining this year's entertainment?
LinkyThere's no official word yet, but Chuckas said Monday afternoon that Kegasus, the half-man, half-centaur mascot, would likely not return this year. Preakness' InfieldFest has become such a significant event in recent years, Chuckas said, that a mascot might no longer be neccessary.
"The brand is very strong. It's become a first-class event," Chuckas said via telephone. "The Jockey Club's need to rely on Kegasus is less than ever."
Does mean songs like "Dopeball" will be featured this year?
Racing really is the "sport of kings".
