That means you don't have much faith in the negotiating skills of the ITHA.  

Since both sides are back to warring in the press, it's fairly apparent there was no positive outcome to any "negotiating" .

It would be interesting to see these phantom guidelines of which AP speaks, because there is absolutely nothing different in the stall apps online than what constituted the bone of contention earlier.

Now, if what you're actually selling is the beauty of your track as a local picnic destination, and high-priced concessions to the picnic goers, and racing be damned, I guess maybe. Might as well try to gouge the live horsemen you're grudgingly putting up with in order to retain your simulcast dates, as well.
 
That pretty much sums up CDI's AP business model these days. I'll also add that another part of the plan is one big day of racing a year with maybe two more largeish days underneath. They do the same at Churchill. In general, the Churchill spring meet blows.

I see Forbes says the Cubs are the fourth most profitable team in baseball and they had the most revenues last year: for that product. Come to think of it, maybe the Arlingtonsters are geniuses for selling the facility, product be damned.
