Cuts, Cuts, and More Cuts

During yesterdays Maryland Racing commission meeting, we learned the following:

- 15 days will be cut from the Laurel winter meet. No more racing on Sundays. (I think I would have cut Wednesday)

-
If slots are not approved in the next 5 months, the Pimlico meet will be cut from 40 days to 25 days (from 8 weeks, down to 5)

- If Pimlico dates are cut, they will close the track to training from May to November.

My take: One last nail in the coffin of Maryland racing before the special legislative session for slots starts on Monday. I hope this game works!
