Looks like the new ILHBPA is working hard to straighten thinks out at FP.  What do the FP horsemen think?

Excerpt from the ILHBPA website "News":
August 21st, 2016 | written by Pete Scalcione
Dear Horsemen,

Last night we met with Fairmount management. We would like to report to all that we have a tentative agreement in place. As of today, the horsemen will be allowed to stay on the grounds and train throughout the winter and up to the start of the 2017 meet. In addition we have agreed to a 41 day meet for 2017 with the possibility of adding races to some of the days if we can fill them. It looks like our racing schedule will start the first Tuesday prior to the Derby in 2017, just as it did this year and continue about 2 weeks longer, into late September. It is our plan to run 2 days per week throughout 2017, no 3 day weeks.

They didn't quite get all they were asking for ... being charged $400k overwinter stall rents instead of the $225k they wanted, but much cheaper than this past winter.

   Hopefully, a workable compromise.  The efforts of the New Board should be appreciated.

I'm sure slots are just around the corner now with Madigan and Rauner in charge.
