Attention, Mr. Frank Stronach. As chairman of the parent company of the
Maryland Jockey Club, owner and operator of Laurel Park and Pimlico, I
assume you know what was said here last week — that, because you guys
lost on Question A in Anne Arundel County, you're going to close Laurel
and reduce Maryland thoroughbred racing to a 40-day meet at Pimlico.
I assume this was your idea, Mr. Frank Stronach. It's a bad idea.
Maybe you're just trying to scare everyone into changing their plans —
and state law — by giving you a slots casino. Maybe you want the one
that's supposed to be built in Baltimore, and maybe you'd like to see
it at Pimlico. Maybe you're just really ticked off that David Cordish
won the referendum to build his slots emporium and entertainment center
at Arundel Mills when you and the MJC wanted slots at Laurel.
