Re: Maryland Racing Commission - A Good Blueprint...

Very happy to see this. I'm encouraged that this is something that might actually work and spread to other areas. It's certainly better than the federal Horseracing Integrity Act of 2019 that is controversial but slowly gaining a bit more support, and better than the painfully slow process of state ...
