Thoroughbred Racing Back In The City Of Detroit At The Fairgrounds? Governor Rick Snyder Makes Sure That Is A No.
Michigan Legislators: Nothing Has Changed. This is the same damn story and the same damn dance. Dan Adkins and who he represents are trying their best to kill LIVE Thoroughbred Horse Racing in the State. Read Original Blog from almost two years ago. No wool over the T.B. Horsemen’s Eyes. We see all to clear and you should as well.
The petition he tried to put forward was bull and now trying to amend the Racing Act yet 95% of the people that patronize the Harness tracks on Sat. & Sun. afternoons are betting on the Thoroughbred Inter-State Simulcasting Signals. 70% in the evenings while live racing is actually going on at their tracks are still betting on the T.B. Signals.
Adkins wants to amend the 1995 Racing Act. That Act States that their must be a live meet running of that breed to be eligible to receive inter-state simulcasting signals of that breed.
Let us see how long the Harness tracks would stay open without the ability to have those Thoroughbred Signals. The moment those signals would disappear their doors would close for good.
Let us the Thoroughbred Horsemen/Women Introduce that.
They want the Thoroughbreds dead in the State, then let it be ALL the Thoroughbreds coming in from the other States as well. Let’s see if they can survive without the Thoroughbred Horse Racing Breed Period.
Dan Adkins is an Imbecile.
Thinking he can attempt to swindle unknowing individuals into this so called Petition to SAVE MI. RACING. When as written the only ones who will be saved is this GROUP he’s been hired by. Bernard Hartman and Herbert Tyner. Hazel Park Raceway real estate moguls. Or rather MORONS.
Recent Articles in the Oakland Press & Royal Oak Daily Tribune & MLive.com don’t even begin to tell the real story. Dan Adkins has himself being portrayed as some Savior for Saving Horse Racing in Michigan. And he is anything but.

The 2012 racing application for Pinnacle has been withdrawn.
Larry Julian on October 5, 2011 advised the MGCB that circumstances beyond his control have made impossible to meet deadlines. Larry expressed his appreciation to HBPA for their support and cooperation received from MGCB while he attempted to meet application requirements. Larry went on to say ” I remain positive that Pinnacle will again be a premier racing facility with additional gaming and remain optimistic in its future”.
And the saddening and more than sickening situation that affects all Thoroughbred Horsemen/Women continues on. Continue reading

In a flurry of activity June 28 both houses of the Ohio General Assembly passed legislation allowing racetracks to apply for video lottery terminal licenses.
In 2009 Michigan Governor Granholm after 75 years threw Horse Racing here to the wolves. Citing this reason the ORC was being dissolved: NO MORE FUNDING available.
Well it would seem now Michigan has a surplus of $429,000,000.00 and doesn’t know what to do with it. And everybody and their cousin is after it. Wasn’t the Lottery designed to fund the schools? Then why aren’t they?
Since 1933 there was an Industry that at one time generated over $400 Million per year to this State and it was HORSE RACING.
Now that Pinnacle Race Course has made its decision.
Tom Gantert going in circles on his now SERIES? LOL
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.
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.
DEMANDS, DEMANDS, DEMANDS

The Indiana Downs meet went out with a bang July 14 with a new total handle record for one program.

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?
