As of December 29, 2005, the Illinois Harness Horsemens Association and Balmoral / Maywood Still DO NOT have a contract for 2006.
THE IHHA DOES NOT ENDORSE RACING WITHOUT A CONTRACT.
The IHHA and track management met again to negotiate the 2006 contract on Thursday afternoon, December 29 and both sides are at a serious impasse.
The IHHA is standing firm to get a contract as good as the one we have been racing for the past three years.
Since NO AGREEMENT has been reached at this time the IHHA reminds all horsemen that they DO NOT endorse racing without a signed contract.
Please call the hotline, check our website at www.harnessillinois.com or talk with an IHHA board member to make sure the IHHA has a signed agreement.
NOTE: Balmoral has cancelled racing for Sunday, January 1 and Tuesday, January 3.
Thank you for your support.
