More Maryland racing stuff

- Dave Carey with the Baltimore Examiner continues the trend of being concerned for Maryland racing with this article. It is pretty much the same as all the other that have been written about the dying horse industry in Maryland.

- This article in the Baltimore Sun, Horse Racing Handicapped is an article we have seen before, but with a local flavor. The article talks about how immigration reform has hurt the workers in the horse industry.

- This is the good one. Baltimore Sun columnist, John Eisenberg tries to convince his readers that the purse at the Preakness Satkes (Gr. I), may not be enough to attract the Kentucky Derby winner. Well John, I think you are missing a few points here....

* You need the second jewel if you want the triple crown.
* It is a Gr I race. This kind of helps when setting your price in the breeding shed.
* It is a $1,000,000 race.

- I don't know if anyone remembers this, but " Barbaro broke down a year ago at the Preakness.
