We learned over the weekend, to the surprise of many, that the city of Baltimore has reached an agreement with The Stronach Group, the owners of the Pimlico Race Course in Park Heights, on a plan to redevelop the aging track facility and the surrounding neighborhood, and to keep the Preakness Stakes -- the second jewel in horse racing’s prestigious Triple Crown -- permanently at Pimlico. 

Joining Tom in the studio to discuss the details of this momentous agreement -- and the work still ahead to implement it -- is Maryland Delegate Sandy Rosenberg.  He represents the state's 41st legislative district -- which includes the Pimlico Race Course.  Delegate Rosenberg has long been an advocate for the redevelopment of the track complex and for keeping the Preakness at Pimlico.   

We welcomed your calls, emails, Tweets and Facebook comments.
