No Help

- The "Maryland General Assembly concludes with no financial support for state’s racing industry" is the title of the John Scheinman column in the Thoroughbred Times. Well, the title pretty much sums it all up. 90 days of the legislative session, and no help for the horse industry. Great job guys, I hope the new Governor is proud of his first session!

- Delaware commissioned a study on the "Economic Impact" of sports gaming, and the big winner would be the people. According to the study, sports betting alone would generate $26 million annually but also would create an additional $169.3 million in slots revenues and about 250 new jobs. I wonder if any of that additional money will be funneled back to the ponies?
