The Maryland Racing Commission meeting Dec. 20 at Laurel Park marked a changing of the guard, but the message was one of unity.
It was the first meeting for two new members: Chairman Michael Algeo and Konrad Wayson. Algeo, a retired Montgomery County Circuit Court judge, said he hopes to continue the forward momentum in the Maryland racing industry.
“I can assure you I will do everything in my power to make sure horse racing goes in the same direction it has been going,” Algeo said. “My hope is to make certain that peace in the valley continues.”
