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.

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.

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.

MICHIGAN IS TOO BROKE TO FUND HORSE RACING.
