"Under a separate agreement negotiated between the IHHA, Balmoral/Maywood and Suburban Downs the harness horsemen will receive half of the proceeds and ALL future recapture will be WAIVED!!!!"
What exactly does this mean and can this "separate agreement" be shown to the members of the IHHA as proof as to what they're talking about here?
Who voted this agreement or did the Board of Directors simply decide themselves. The membership of the IHHA must decide on issues like this, even on short notice; or again does the ELECTED Board of Directors just say OK 50/50 instead of 60/40 even though you'll end up making more $$$ in the end.
The clause on marketing and promoting the sport is a joke. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE SINCE 1995 AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT.
