New Preakness mascot: ‘Kegasus’

Behold ‘Kegasus’: The new Preakness mascot for the May 21st race is half-man, half-horse, er, half-keg?!? Well, we’re not sure. But here’s how Preakness organizers describe him:

This year’s Infieldfest Party at the Preakness has officially reached legendary status. An event so spectacular, we accidentally ripped a hole in the fabric of awesomeness and out stepped a freaking Centaur. Part champion Thoroughbred, part infield fan and all party manimal, he proclaimed ‘I am Kegasus, Lord and protector of InfieldFest.’ And since no one’s gonna argue with a centaur we replied, ‘All Hail Kegasus!’ He reminds us to never stop striving to Be Legendary.

Dan Steinberg has the full rundown over at D.C. Sports Bog.
