 You gotta hand it to the guy that wrote the article- he tells it like it is and pulls no punches.

It’s bad enough the politicians couldn’t get the casino thing done before( it does need some tweaking still, mostly due to closing loopholes that certain unlawful businesses can get away with stuff), and now that it has, CDI is screwing the trainers/owners!

Casinos are never good for racing in the long run.

Probably not, but track owners can offer more of their earnings over what the gambling law states. The problem is CDI is part of racing history by owning Churchill Downs and running the Kentucky Derby, but has lost their touch with the racing community for the almighty dollar. They make enough on their gambling venues to support a racetrack......

Illinois is holding off putting out their racing schedule in the hopes of CDI submitting paperwork to become a racino or lose their racing license- that flipping organization makes my blood boil!

Let's see where their heart really lies - racing or the slots.

Slots. Disgusting 2 face CDI and their greediness does not include racing. It’s a shame the history of Churchill has turned into this uncaring corporation!

What a crock!  I have no love for Churchill and it's one place I've never taken my friends to when I'm in KY.  I won't go.

This pisses me off! I do hope that CDI steps up so that we do not lose the Arlington Million, etc
