The411:  As race fans gear up for the Preakness this Saturday, Churchill Downs will run the 2nd Annual Chuck Olmstead Memorial to honor the veteran reporter who passed away in March 2009 after an aneurysm ruptured in his brain.
The Chuck Olmstead Memorial will be the 7th race, which will run around  4:00 p.m. 
Chuck's widow, Candy Olmstead, has established a special fund in her husband's memory through Norton Healthcare Foundation to support screenings and education provided by Norton Neuroscience Institute. These screenings will help detect aneurysms before they rupture, increase awareness of symptoms of ruptured brain aneurysms and, perhaps, save lives in the process. More information go to www.ChuckOlmsteadFund.com.
