Gazette.net has reported that on Wednesday, April 29, a Prince George's County Circuit Court in Maryland issued a stay which will ensure Rosecroft Raceway will be able to simulcast the Kentucky Derby tomorrow.
The Maryland Racing Commission voted 6-2 on Tuesday, April 28 to revoke the Fort Washington harness track's rights after learning Rosecroft had defaulted on money owed to the Maryland Jockey Club, breeders and horsemen for the simulcast signal.
In the article, Lisa Watts, vice president of Operations at Rosecroft, was cited as saying that Kelley Rogers (president of Cloverleaf Enterprises, which owns Rosecroft) filed a motion in Prince George's County Circuit Court to stay the commission's ruling until a procedural hearing can be held.
