The Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association this year has stepped up its events for backstretch workers and horsemen at Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course, and the results have been positive.

The MTHA hired Frank Douglas part-time beginning in January, and he has been overseeing a host of events that began at Laurel and have expanded to Pimlico. The most recent, a pool tournament held at noon April 3 in the Laurel Recreation Room, had 10 players but Douglas said others showed up and wanted to participate. The tournament required a low-cost buy-in that was supplemented by funds from the MTHA.
