Trainers & Owners Beware of Stall Rent
Provision in AP 2013 Stall App.
I had a conversation with the Executive Director of the Illinois Racing Board
this morning, 2/9/13, who confirmed, despite AP's denials, that Arlington Park's
published 2013 Stall Application including stall rent imposition "clearly violates"
Imposing a stall rent on trainers during a live racing meet is an unprecedented
attempted take by Arlington Park.
Unless Arlington Park, or its parent Churchill Downs, Inc., reverses this
decision quickly, ITHA will seek emergency relief from the Racing Board.
