We certainly don’t want to see anyone hurt because of outdated stands. If there is indeed a structural issue, then precautions need to be taken to keep people safe. Right now, we just don’t have enough information to say whether the threat is real, notwithstanding company officials’ assertion that their decision has nothing to do with politics. If so, then we eagerly await The Stronach Group’s announcement of plans for emergency investments in Pimlico, both to provide more temporary seating at this year’s race and to fix the supposed structural problems before next year. Pardon us if we don’t hold our breath.
