discussions continuing between management and horsemen to get a contract ironed
out that will preserve the standardbred industry in Illinois,
management has announced that the “normal” Feb. 15th date for
nomination payments for the 2014 stakes season has been pushed back to March 1st.
we hope and expect our live racing product to resume very soon, we felt it
would be in the best interests of horsemen in both Illinois and throughout the
country to extend the deadline for nomination payments until March 1st
in order to allow everything to be finalized.”
