Now that the rally and racing has been canceled today, on this very snowy December 19, 2009, leaders in the horse industry are urging horse people to send a letter to the Anne Arundel County Council Members.  Click here for more background, sample letters and contact information for legislators.

Industry leaders are also asking horse people to attend the County Council meeting (44 Calvert Street; Annapolis) on Monday, December 21st to show support for slots at Laurel Racetrack, and to urge the Council to vote against approval zoning for slots at Arundel Mills (because of the negative impact slots at Arundel Mills will have on Laurel’s future).
