- A mere $200,000 would keep harness racing going. $200,000 would mean $1 million in economic benefits.
- Let's not kid ourselves, $200,000 is chump change.A small amount from various programs could have came up with the $200,000.
- Why did the SLGA give Marquis Downs (thoroughbred racing) the home market for the entire province, yet not give Yorktown any market for off-track wagering? Where is the analysis which shows the province could only have one home market instead of two? I think the standardbred horsemen deserve a reason why they were cut out, not just it was a done deal.
I think the standardbred horsemen are owed an explanation from the province. Unfortunately, they probably won't get it.
