A plan to redevelop the historic Pimlico Race Course in Northwest Baltimore and Laurel Park racetrack in Anne Arundel County is making its way through the General Assembly. One of the main objectives of the plan is to keep the nearly 150-year-old Preakness Stakes horse race in Baltimore.

Lawmakers were presented with details of the plan at hearings in Annapolis Tuesday. Rachel Baye and Nathan Sterner talk about what they heard.
