It started with a cup of coffee.  In the late 1930’s on the porch of the historic Pimlico Clubhouse, a group of trainers, owners and greater and lesser dignitaries would gather in the mornings to tout the merits of their horses. Today’s Alibi Breakfast is a descendant of the original gathering at the Old Clubhouse, featuring media, owners, trainers, jockeys and horsemen celebrating Preakness.
