BALTIMORE (WJZ) — More than 275 riders cantered their horses at Pimlico Sunday morning.

The event, Canter for the Cause, benefits Susan G. Komen Maryland and Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.

At 6 a.m, riders were allowed to walk, trot and canter their horses and ponies on the same track that many famous horses like Secretariat, Seabiscuit, California Chromes and this year’s Preakness & Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah have walked.

“For the second consecutive year, Canter For The Cause was a great opportunity for horse owners and horse lovers to enjoy Pimlico Race Course while raising awareness and giving back to Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and Susan G. Komen Maryland,” said Maryland Jockey Club Vice President and General Manager Sal Sinatra. “For those of us with the Maryland Jockey Club, it was a pleasure and honor to meet so many people who share our love and respect for the horse and are committed to the growth of Thoroughbred racing throughout Maryland.”
