I love to go to the races. I love to play the races. It's one of my favorite pastimes, and I travel the country attending various racetracks. I also love Maryland racing, but the facilities at Pimlico Race Course make me not want to attend the live races at my home track ( "Thoroughbred racing resumes at Pimlico on Thursday," April 2). The facilities are horrendous. Flooded restrooms and a malfunctioning video board in the infield so patrons can't even watch the races. I could go on. My question is where is the 2.5 percent of slot machine revenue that is allocated for the "race track facilities upgrades account" being spent?
