We’re hoping they get this resolved soon. Just don’t appoint a Super Committee!
Talks to determine Maryland’s horse racing schedule moving slowly – baltimoresun.com
Maryland horsemen learned Monday afternoon they’d have to wait longer for a definitive answer on the state’s racing dates for the 2012 season.
“We’ve had productive meetings,” said John McDaniel, a member of the Maryland Racing Commission who has spearheaded the discussions. “Both parties have entered the dialogue with desire to reach an agreement.”
But no agreement has been reached, and the Maryland Jockey Club has not put in a request for any racing dates. Tracks often ask for 365 days as a way to meet the Dec. 1 deadline and request specific live dates later. But no request was made, the commission’s executive director Mike Hopkins said, “because McDaniel said they wanted to work through the negotiation process first.”
