He should call it First Downs
Seattle Seahawks tight end Mike Tice, a Maryland alumnus, hopes to become part owner of a racetrack.
Tice said his investor group has obtained the financing and additional land to build a 191-acre thoroughbred race track in Auburn, Wash., a suburb south of Seattle.
If granted a license to race, Tice said his track could be constructed by the 1993 season.
Tice also is a horse owner. His investor group, the Association for the Continuation of Racing in Washington, plans to incorporate as Auburn Park Inc. and apply to the state Horse Racing Commission for 1993 dates.
