Md. Breeders Like China Racehorse Deal

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Some Maryland racehorse breeders say a growing Chinese interest in imported thoroughbreds could help boost their struggling industry.

The Frederick News-Post reported Tuesday that three Maryland horses were among 29 that were recently shipped from the United States to Asia.

Breeder Larry Murray of Glade Valley Horse Farms near Frederick says he’s always happy to have a new market for his animals.

Sharon Clark of Rigbie Farms in Harford County says Korea and Russia also are buying Maryland horses.

The Maryland Agriculture Department says the Chinese have spent millions to revive their horse-racing industry.

Clark says that could open up a huge market for U.S. breeders.

This is exactly why people don’t like to talk to reporters that don’t bother to gather the the most basic of information about the subject they intend to write about. How can anybody take you seriously with a picture like that.
