On Saturday afternoon, Maryland horse racing once again will take its place in the sporting world's spotlight with the 136th running of the Preakness Stakes at Baltimore's Pimlico Race Course. The other 364 days of the year, however, Pimlico and the Maryland racing industry aren't proving ready for their close-up.
"The way the slot law was written, the thoroughbred track was not named as a slot licensee," said Alan Foreman, general counsel for the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association. "It allowed competing bids to come in."
Although neither track could be considered dilapidated, he said, "they're dinosaur facilities that haven't been modernized."
