Beverly Strauss | Sarah Andrew

Beverly Strauss, co-founder and Executive Director of the Chesapeake City, M.D.-based Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue, has been named as the Honorary Postmaster for Preakness 149, the Maryland Jockey Club announced Monday. Strauss will be recognized during the Alibi Breakfast Thursday, May 16 at Pimlico Race Course.

A graduate of the U.S. Pony Club, Strauss helped launch MAHR in 2002 with the goal of helping to find and transition former racehorses to new homes. A federal 501(c)3 non-profit organization, MAHR buys ex-racehorses and, after quarantine and careful evaluation, adopts them into good homes as pleasure and sport horses.

The Alibi Breakfast, which began in the 1930s on the porch of the old Pimlico Clubhouse, features a gathering of media, owners, trainers, jockeys, horsemen and fans to celebrate the Preakness. Click here for more information on the Alibi Breakfast and to purchase tickets.
