Slots at the mall will help the horse racing industry

December 28, 2009

I am an Anne Arundel County resident and also a horseman. This state has needed slots for a long time to revive the horse racing industry. There are so many other states right at our backdoor that have made huge improvements to their racing programs due to slots revenues.

I am very pleased to see that we have a local company, the Cordish Cos., interested in saving our industry, because the current race track owners could care less.

The slots at the mall will create jobs, produce much needed revenues for the state and avoid a tax increase no one can afford.

We must keep in mind that are so many people who work at the race tracks, and they can not afford to lose thier jobs. I can tell you from my own experience as a owner and trainer that racing is a way of life and a passion for many.Cynthia Boys
