As of January 4 , 2006, the IHHA and Balmoral / Maywood Still DO NOT have a contract for 2006.
Both sides have been submitting proposals and counterproposals throughout the past day since the horsemen's meeting on Tuesday.
Lorna Propes, Chairman of the Illinois Racing Board, has been involved by talking with both the IHHA and track management in an attempt to keep the dialogue moving.
At the time of this notice, we are waiting to hear back from the Johnston's on a proposal the IHHA has submitted to them.
Please call the hotline, check our website at www.harnessillinois.com or talk with the IHHA office to make sure the IHHA has a signed agreement.
NOTE: Balmoral has cancelled racing for Wednesday, January 4 and Maywood has cancelled racing for Thursday, January 5 & Friday January 6h.
THE IHHA DOES NOT ENDORSE RACING WITHOUT A CONTRACT
