PINNACLE RACE COURSE IS BEING HIJACKED BY THE MGCB: MICHIGAN THOROUGHBRED HORSE RACING HAS GENERATED $5,594,667.00 current fiscal year off 3.5% Simulcast Tax. But Threatens to Shut Pinnacle Race Course Down Today at 12 NOON Unless WE PAY THEM $57,000 MORE. THIS IS A CONSPIRACY.
And yet not one word on our LOCAL MEDIA NEWS STATIONS.
WXYZ, WDIV, WJBK, DETROIT NEWS, OR DETROIT FREE PRESS.
On November 5th because of the Veto of funding to the ORC which in reality was already dissolved by Governor Granholm. Because of lack of money for racing officials. ALL 5 MICHIGAN HORSE TRACKS WILL HAVE TO CEASE OPERATION. That means ALL Simulcasting & Live Racing.
And yet the only Media coverage I’ve seen is on links below. Out of Mid/Mi.
The Breeders Cup this year is on Friday November 6th & 7th.
Because of the ORC LAYOFFS: The Michigan HBPA was notified that effective November 5, 2009, due to the Governor’s veto of the funding for the ORC, that all ORC will be laid-off. That will cease all racing activity to include live and simulcasting statewide.
