Breathing Room in the Land of Lincoln
Today the U.S. Supreme Court refused to get involved in the dispute between the casinos and the racetracks in Illinois. As a result, $76 million dollars will be coming to the racetracks. This should stablize the purse situation for a little while and may help stem the exodus from Illinois while a long term solution is sought. Hopefully, this time will not be squandered.
