Maryland Horse Stuff

- Well it looks like Maryland will need to find another location for the Maryland Horse Park. I wondered why they picked the location they did, considering the local politicians were against the plan since day one. I am glad that it did not work out for Ann Arundel County. It would be much smarter to have the horse park in Cecil county, by the Delaware and Pennsylvania borders. The Cecil County location is also on I95, a little road that runs up the east coast of the US.

- Under Armour (NYSE: UA) CEO Kevin Plank has just purchased Sagamore Farm, probably the most prestigious horse farm in Maryland. Originally owned by Alfred G. Vanderbilt, Sagamore Farms' best known racehorses were Discovery, Bed o'Roses, and Native Dancer, all of whom were inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. Lets hope that Mr. Plank can restore the old farm to a great Maryland breeding and racing operation.

- Trainer Michael Trombetta said Monday that "owners Joseph Balsamo and Ted Theos made the decision and that Sweetnorthernsaint could race again as early as Saturday in the $100,000 Harrison E. Johnson Memorial Handicap over 1 1/8 miles at Laurel Park". I'll be watching to entries.......
