Horse racing is alive and well in Maryland

Kudos to The Sun's sports staff and their recent coverage of the grand old Maryland tradition of horse racing ("Digest: Maryland horse wagering rose 7.5 percent in 2012," Jan. 6).

Several important stakes races attracting national and international racing stars are being run at Laurel, and it is great that they are getting some coverage.

The 15,000 Maryland race track employees, hay growers, vets, farriers and countless fans thank you for this much-needed support.
