Laurel Park was forced to cancel its opening-day summer meet program July 3 due to a water main break in Anne Arundel County affecting 40,000 homes and businesses.
A plan to put slot machines at Arundel Mills Mall instead of Laurel Park is the driving force of a Nov. 2 referendum in Anne Arundel County, Md.
A citizens' group will meet the evening of June 29 to discuss a court ruling that rejected a referendum on slot machines in Anne Arundel County, Md.
The Arundel County Board of Elections certified April 1 a petition by residents of the Maryland county to have a November referendum on slot machines.
The Maryland Jockey Club, as well as community groups, March 5 submitted 16,702 additional signatures to the Anne Arundel County Board of Elections in a push to have citizens of the county vote on a zoning permit for slots.
In a jaw-dropping revision, Maryland received requests for far fewer slot machines in five license proposals than previously thought, and two of the six bidders -- including Laurel Park owner Magna Entertainment Corp. -- failed to pay $22.5 million in required up-front fees, a state official said Feb. 3.
