Illinois Racing Board budget deficit threatens 2014 dates

Postby With Anticipation » Tue Sep 24, 2013 5:53 pm

Budgetary problems within the Illinois Racing Board could lead to a drastic reduction in racing dates next year, and the 2014 schedule the board approved by an 8-1 vote Tuesday in Chicago is contingent upon their resolution. The board says it lacks the money to properly administer a typical Illinois racing season – supplying veterinarians and stewards, running the testing laboratory – and in a worst-case scenario their financial plight could lead to a 185-day reduction in racing dates from 2013.
