Pimlico To Come Under State Control

March 18th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Coming down the final straight in Annapolis is a last-minute bill that would put the ownership of Pimlico Racetrack in the hands of the state to restore the course that is one of the jewels in horseracing’s Triple Crown.  $400 million in bond money would be used to rebuild the aging track. The Preakness Race would still be held this year at the track, but then while renovations take place, the race would move to the Laurel Race Track before coming back to a new Pimlico.
