The stakeholders in Maryland’s racing industry are parties to a landmark 10-Year Agreement that has facilitated many positive changes to the way our racing is being conducted at every level. It has truly led to a renaissance for Maryland’s racing industry. Our collective partnership, with the support of the Maryland Racing Commission, has succeeded because we have agreed to speak as one and as a united industry after years of discord.
Moreover, our collective efforts in Maryland, together with our fellow stakeholders and regulators in the Mid-Atlantic region, have resulted in the implementation of industry-leading health, safety and welfare protocols and strategies for our horses. We are seeing evidence-based results from our efforts. In Maryland, we put our horses first, which is why we are committed and enthusiastic participants in the recently adopted Mid-Atlantic Strategic Plan to Reduce Equine Fatalities.
