It's hard to overstate how bleak an outlook Maryland thoroughbred racing faced as recently as four years ago. Magna Entertainment Corp., which owned Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park, had declared bankruptcy and squandered a chance to bring lucrative slot machines to its facilities. The General Assembly had in turn asserted its right to seize the tracks to protect the future of the Preakness Stakes, Maryland's largest sporting event. The state's breeding stock was in freefall.

Half a dozen state programs to attract, retain and build mostly small companies in Maryland largely escaped the budget-cutting ax that fell when the Schaefer administration announced $243 million in additional spending decreases Friday.The latest deficit-reduction plan, announced Friday by Charles L. Benton Jr., secretary of budget and fiscal planning, included only about $4 million in cuts from Department of Economic and Employment Development programs to finance business development, a department spokeswoman said.

When jockey Chelsey Keiser rode Greentree Road, a 6-year-old gelding from Frederick, across the finish line to place second in the fourth race at Laurel Park on Thursday, she earned his owner 20 percent of the $15,000 purse, or $3,000. It was far from the biggest take on a sunny opening day of the 2013 fall meet, the 103rd for the storied track. But it made history. Thanks to a new incentive program aimed at revitalizing Maryland's sagging horse industry, Greentree Road also netted his breeders a bonus of 30 percent of its purse winnings - $900 - because the horse was born in the state.

The Kentucky Derby winner and oddsmakers' favorite for the Preakness Stakes isn't exactly a Maryland horse, but he's close - Orb is partially owned by a Baltimore County businessman, and his sire spent some time in Harford County. Attendance at Saturday's races might or might not set an all-time record, but it's bound to be close - top-flight music acts, it seems, are a bigger draw than BYOB debauchery. The weather may not be perfect, but it will be close - the latest forecast is for a high of 72 but with a slight chance of showers.

I have been a Maryland horseman for more than 30 years, but it is only recently that I have become better acquainted with the issues that face the equine industry on our state. I started going to the Maryland Racing Commission meetings. Our group dedicated to preserving harness racing joined the Maryland Horse Council. I started talking to people involved with the thoroughbred community. And I have gotten a sense of the views that all segments of our industry would like to express to our elected officials as they once again debate expanded gambling.

Ross Eisenbrey's contention that Maryland's crab meat industry "has scared Maryland politicians for years" ("Jobs and fairness: 'prevailing wage' rule good for Marylanders," Oct. 24) shows he doesn't understand the industry and is willing to ignore or bend facts to suit an ideological argument against the guest worker program. The idea that a few mostly mom and pop firms can scare Maryland's leaders into misguided action is laughable. Perhaps our officials know enough about the industry and why it relies on H-2B workers to seek adjustments to Labor Department regulations.
