At an OHHA members' meeting Sunday night the large gathering voted to support its negotiating team's efforts to secure a satisfactory OHHA racing contract with WEG and in the circumstances are prepared to temporarily race their horses while those negotiations continue.

The support for the negotiating committee included direction to maintain the positions the membership endorsed at this and previous meetings. The decision to stop withholding entries was based on two main considerations. First, it is a further show of good faith to WEG to assist with the negotiations. Second, the withholding of entries was creating a situation whereby many horsepeople were suffering financially while others were benefiting.

OHHA's legal positions involved in bringing this situation, and support for those positions by its membership, have not changed at all.
