Sunday is the last Live Racing Day for the 2010 season. A season filled with much anxiety, stress and uncertainty.
Perhaps a Change of Heart? or just the Truth. “Schizophrenic” State Planning on Horse Racing. Now that’s more accurate Tom Gantert.
Now we are talking what is Horse Racing’s real issues and problem here in the State of Michigan.
DEMANDS, DEMANDS, DEMANDS
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, More $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, More $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
The Michigan Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association Offers to pay Pinnacle Race Course’s Water Bill, But told by Pinnacle Sorry Not Enough.
Where and when does all this insanity stop?
That is what this was. Holding Thoroughbred Racing Hostage in Michigan.
The time and date for Chairman Ed Boike’s meeting is still being worked out, said the source, who agreed to speak to Crain’s on condition of anonymity.
The Indiana Downs meet went out with a bang July 14 with a new total handle record for one program.
Saturday’s HBPA meeting seemed to be focused on one thing and one thing only. Are we going to finish our 44 days?
STATE REVENUE FROM THE 3.5% SIMULCAST TAX CURRENT FISCAL YEAR: OCTOBER 1, 2009-JUNE 6,2010
This is what Michigan wants to throw away. MUCH NEEDED REVENUE. Well if Michigan doesn’t want it and since Horse Racing generates it. Why are the Thoroughbred Horsemen having to BUY BACK DATES WITH OUR PURSES?
Well it’s off to the MGCB for the Horsemen’s Benevolent Protection Association in Michigan to attempt to seal an agreement with Pinnacle for the upcoming very short meet for 2010.
Jerry Campbell wants a ton of money from the HBPA upfront. HBPA lawyer is looking into the legalities of it all. And Pinnacle won’t guarantee a thing even if $$$ is received. Opening the door for Lawsuits from Horsemen.
CLOCKER AVAILABLE: There will be a clocker available at Pinnacle Race Course on Saturday and Sunday beginning Saturday April 24,2010 between 8:00am and 11:30am. In order, to assist our horsemen and women during this stressful period, the HBPA has agreed to pay for the cost of the clocker. Hope this offers some relief.
