PREAKNESS-BATTLE FOR PIMLICO

BALTIMORE _ The future of Pimlico Race Course has become a tug of war between Baltimore officials and the track owners. At the center of the battle is the Preakness. City officials want to keep the second leg of the Triple Crown at Pimlico. The Stronach Group believes racing in Maryland would thrive far better at nearby Laurel Park. While many trainers are fine with keeping the Preakness at Pimlico, it’s going to take more than $420 million to renovate the crumbling facility. By Dave Ginsburg. SENT: 900 words, photos.
