Maryland Examines Future Racing At Rosecroft
In Maryland, "with Rosecroft Raceway (once that state's leading harness racing track) on the brink of extinction, the state soon will begin to examine the feasibility of racing thoroughbreds at the financially strapped facility," reported thoroughbredtimes.com. The House Of Delegates passed a bill "establishing a task force to explore the concept & the Maryland Racing Commission named David Clogg to be its representative on the 8-member panel". Rosecroft (which opened in 1949) "has been unable to compete with racetracks in neighboring states that have been strengthened by the addition of slot machine revenue".
