Maryland gambling debate: What happened to horse racing?
I have been a Maryland horseman for more than 30 years, but it is only recently that I have become better acquainted with the issues that face the equine industry on our state. I started going to the Maryland Racing Commission meetings. Our group dedicated to preserving harness racing joined the Maryland Horse Council. I started talking to people involved with the thoroughbred community. And I have gotten a sense of the views that all segments of our industry would like to express to our elected officials as they once again debate expanded gambling.
