And They're Off----Again

posted by John Baibak - 

The inadvertent statewide ban on horse  racing in Massachusetts in now over.  

And state lawmakers worked at a speed that some would say they never worked before.

Governor Charlie Baker yesterday  signed a bill that was quickly passed by the legislature to end the  accidental ban.  

Lawmakers failed to pass a bill extending horse racing  in the state before the legislative session ended this week.  

The lack  of action caused the temporary suspension of racing at Suffolk Downs,  Raynham Park as well as  Plainridge Park.
