Stronach Group agrees to purchase Rosecroft

And just in case you have not had enough news related to Maryland horse racing and race tracks, leading into Preakness week (and thus almost overlooked) – and after months of unconfirmed reports – The Stronach Group announced that it had struck a deal with Penn National Gaming, Inc. to purchase Rosecroft Raceway. The Stronach Group owns numerous racetracks, including Santa Anita Park, Gulfstream Park & Casino, Golden Gate Fields, Portland Meadows, and–of course–Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Courses (under the auspices of The Maryland Jockey Club). Additionally the company owns and operates the Palm Meadows Training Center in Florida as well as the breeding farm Adena Springs. But that’s not all! The Stronach Group believes in vertical integration! It is one of the world’s largest suppliers of pari-mutuel wagering systems, technologies and services. It owns AmTote, one of the largest providers of wagering technology in the world; Xpressbet, an Internet and telephone account wagering service; and Monarch Content Management, which acts as a simulcast purchase and sales agent of horseracing content for numerous North American racetracks and wagering outlets. Owning as many pieces as possible on the Monoply board of life appears to be a successful strategy for the company. The acquisition must still be approved by the Maryland Racing Commission before it can be final. According to the official release announcing...

Equine Herpes: 3 Weeks Clear in Howard County

Maryland is now officially three weeks clear, as there have been no new cases of Equine Herpes Virus-1 (EHV-1) reported since April 19, when two horses stabled at Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Howard County tested positive for the non-neuropathogenic strain of the virus. The farm was placed on 30-day quarantine when the first case was confirmed on April 18. There has been no movement of horses on or off the farm since that date. No other EHV-1 cases have been reported in Maryland. The farm is fully cooperating with the Maryland Department of Agriculture. The farm’s attending veterinarian and animal health inspectors from the Department have been closely monitoring all horses on the farm and have found no new cases of the virus. The quarantined farm has taken additional measures to prevent the spread of EHV-1 by enacting strict biosecurity protocols, helping to ensure that no visitors or vendors carry the disease onto other farms. The quarantine is expected to be lifted on May 19, pending no additional EHV-1 cases on the farm. “We have reached out to veterinarians, horse owners and stables across the state since the case was confirmed last month. No other EHV-1 cases have been reported in Maryland,” said State Veterinarian Dr. Michael Radebaugh. “We have no reason to believe that the disease has spread beyond this specific...
