And The Horses Are On The Track! (Not)

Maryland's horse racing industry's taking another hit. This time it's the standardbred* racing side that's limping through tough times that just got tougher...take a listen.

*Standardbred racing: instead of a jockey on the horse's back, these animals have drivers in sulkies behind them and must trot or pace. Standardbred is the name of the breed of horse, just as Thoroughbred is the name of the breed of horse that you see run on tracks under saddle.
