Eric and Alena Ruiz of Odenton coordinated their outfits for Preakness. She started with a multi-color striped maternity sundress from Motherhood, sparkly turquoise and pink Charming Charlie flat sandals and a brown straw sunhat she decorated with a turquoise band and feathers. "I told her to go in my closet and find what matches," says her husband, a Transamerica information security officer. She came up with a turquoise shirt and taupe Calvin Klein suit. (Kenneth K.

Baltimore Baby! I was so proud how the Maryland Jockey Club had fixed up Pimlico for the Preakness. Every building, every railing and sign — all were freshly painted with magnificent yellow flowers everywhere! Baltimore is first class!
