That is what this was. Holding Thoroughbred Racing Hostage in Michigan.

Simulcast revenue produced from 3.5 tax for current fiscal year ending September 30, 2010. Current bal. Oct. 1, 2009 to August 29, 2010 

$5,594,667 

But the Horsemen HBPA and MTOBA had to deliver a Check to the MGCB in order to Race this weekend. Horse Racing GENERATES THIS MONEY. BUT WE CAN’T TOUCH A DIME OF IT.  

The State of Michigan and The Michigan Gaming Control Board has now resorted to Extortion. 

Governor Granholm should hang her head in SHAME.

SO Pinnacle is ALIVE JUST FOR THIS WEEKEND. Sept. 11 &12 

From Mi. HBPA Site: 

MICHIGAN HBPA FILES AN “EMERGENCY” MOTION TO STOP THE MGCB FROM CANCELLING LIVE RACING AT PINNACLE RACE COURSE DUE TO OVERSPENDING BUDGET TO REGULATE LIVE RACING. MOTION IS EXPECTED  

TO BE HEARD EARLY FRIDAY MORNING TO MEET THE 12 NOON DEMAND OF THE MGCB. MOTION WAS FILED AT
