How the slots killed Maryland racing.

John Scheinman of the Washington Post wrote a good article about the problems facing the Maryland breeding industry. I often write about the 600 pound gorilla that is looming in Pennsylvania, but I think a few more people may read his articles. As John points out, the slot machines in Pennsylvania will lead to the demise of the Maryland horse industry. On behalf of all the concerned racing fans in Maryland, I thank you John for getting the word out.

Texas is suffering from the same woes as Maryland ... purses are higher in Louisiana and Oklahoma because of slots, thus the Texas breeding industry is in a sorry state of decline.
