Miller Could Support Session to Address Preakness Problem

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller (D-Calvert) says he would support a special session to pass emergency legislation to keep the Preakness Stakes horse race in Maryland, the Associated Press reports tonight.

According to AP, Miller says the race is "not only a matter of pride, it's a matter of economic development."

Magna Entertainment Corp., the company that owns the Baltimore track that hosts the Preakness, filed for bankruptcy, and its financial problems have raised questions about what would happen to the Preakness if the company sells off its assets.
