Wagering in Maryland was up 7.5 percent in 2012, the Maryland Jockey Club reported Jan. 5, as field size also grew and a record Preakness crowd came to watch I'll Have Another run.
Not everyone's thrilled about the new half-man, half-horse Preakness Stakes (gr. I) mascot that sports a nipple ring and a beer gut.
With 10 to 15 inches of snow expected by the evening, the Maryland Jockey Club has cancelled live racing and simulcasting at Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course for Dec. 19.
