I like Del. Sandy Rosenberg’s optimism, if not his odds.
In an interview with WBAL's Brett Hollander, the Democrat and 41st District delegate said he likes the chances of the Preakness Stakes remaining at Pimlico Race Course.
The track is located in Rosenberg's Northwest Baltimore home district. The Preakness is part of the city of Baltimore's DNA. But the track is owned by the Stronach Group, whose heart (and wallet) lies elsewhere. The company has made little secret that it's eyeing its Laurel Park racetrack as the great Triple Crown race's future home.
Rosenberg is basing his optimism -- if that's not overusing the word -- on a report due next month from the Maryland Stadium Authority, whose emphasis reportedly will be on ways to improve the aging Pimlico facility and keep the Preakness here.
"It's been everybody's commitment that that would be the focus of our discussion ... to look at what the Stadium Authority has recommended," Rosenberg told WBAL.
