Orioles Owner Angelos Bids to Buy Rosecroft, Put Slots There
Bid comes as Maryland's second casino opens at Ocean Downs

Hanah Cho of the Baltimore Sun reports that Baltimore Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos is bidding to buy a bankrupt horse-racing track in Prince George's County and resurrecting a push to allow slot machines at that facility.

Angelos' proposal came as Maryland's second slots casino opened Tuesday at the Ocean Downs racetrack on the Eastern Shore. Gov. Martin O'Malley, state leaders and Worcester County officials attended the grand opening of the $45 million casino, the latest expansion of Maryland gambling that took many years and rancorous debate to become a reality.

And the debate hasn't ended. While voters approved slots at five locations in 2008, efforts have been underway since then to expand gambling to other sites.
