See Story below after first one.

Alan Foreman, general counsel for the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, after the meeting said action must be taken within 48 hours to avoid a shutdown of racing. He said the problems stem from a dysfunctional partnership between MID and PNGI.

“It’s so complicated,” Foreman said. “We thought it was time to say enough is enough. Since (MID, formerly Magna Entertainment Corp.) took over it has been one disaster after another. We need to put a stop to this.”

Perhaps a Change of Heart? or just the Truth. “Schizophrenic” State Planning on Horse Racing. Now that’s more accurate Tom Gantert.

Horse racing industry is both victim of state efforts to kill gambling and beneficiary of state efforts to subsidize gambling.

Now we are talking what is Horse Racing’s real issues and problem here in the State of Michigan.

PINNACLE RACE COURSE ALIVE? YOU BET YA! AND WHY NOT.

State Officials use the Law finally to help a Troubled Business Officials from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation – the state’s flagship economic development agency – changed their mind about not giving a now-financially troubled race track millions in tax subsidies. This came after an original rejection of the deal by the MEDC led to queries from top Wayne County executives and the governor’s office. 

Thank God somebody has come to their senses.

Detroit News Columnist Nolan Finley Weighs in on how Unfair Michigan is to Horse Racing.

Blog Posted Aug. 26th @8:40pm

Gary Tinkle on the HBPA site brought up this point last year on how Governor Granholm and Michigan can give The Movie Industry a 42% tax break from Graholm to exist here. Which cost Mi. $120 Million in Revenue. But Horse Racing got 0% Tax break, which brings in over $400 Million.      

And I put it in Several Blogs.
