So what does everyone want to know?
Intertrack Partners go the approval for their OTB in Niles much to the dismay of Arlington Park and some people from the city of Niles.
All of the officials got their 'stamp of approval' including the new harness outrider.
Amtote had to swear under testimony not to 'pull the plug' and close down the tote systems do a pending lawsuit and other issues (someone needs to pay their bills on time) with the Balmoral/Maywood Group.
Deborah Corson lost her efforts to get her purse money due to a positive on Chewy back in the Spring when Johnny Falkner got a caffeine positive.
Rick Dane almost got 2 years from a newly appointed and highly misinformed Commissioner. He ended up getting his one year for leaving the scene at Balmoral with a ton of security present. They found 6 syringers: 1 with a yellowly-like substance the other 5 with a red-like residue. All from a 'highly-informed' person on the backside.......
Hawthorne is posting $3 million handles on average and is kicking ass..... Balmoral has had 3 excellent handles in the last month, Maywood has had to regroup going back to their Mon Wed Fri schedule and the President of the IHHA blew off contract negotations with Duke Johnston on Wednesday.
Chairman Propes has now undertaken the task of forcing the IHHA and the Balmoral/Maywood managment groups for weekly updates on their negotiations.... Duke had the audacity to state that he's put over $12 million in renovations at the tracks in the last 3 years while Chairman Propes asked him not to get specific.....
Ah, til the next meeting........
