Not a Lot of Action

.... in harness racing-land lately. However, the Woodbine/Horseman dispute over their contract for 09 and beyond keeps getting more and more interesting. The new news is that Woodbine will not be negotiating with the OHHA, they are looking for someone new to deal with, it seems. WEG head David Willmot in the Toronto Star:

"We have absolutely kept the entry box open, the horsemen have never stopped entering and racing and we have assured the horsemen of no changes in any of the financial arrangements. The last thing we want is to prevent anyone from earning a living," WEG head David Willmot said yesterday. "The only thing that has changed is that we do not want to have further negotiations with OHHA.

"We have no legal obligation to be under contract with OHHA. It is not a union. It is an association representing private contractors. We have been under contract (with OHHA) for many years, but that looks like it is coming to an end."
