BALTIMORE — A new executive order signed by Governor Larry Hogan on Monday, paves the way for fans to attend horse racing tracks.
The order comes days before the 2020 Preakness Stakes, on October 3 at Pimlico Race Course.
Under the order, tracks can take in up to 250 fans or 50 percent capacity, whichever comes first.
The order however is subject to approval by local government officials, which means Mayor Jack Young would have to sign off on fans being able to attend.
So far Young nor the owners of the Preakness Stakes, the Stronach Group, have commented on Hogan's order.
