Update On Dresden Raceway


According to a report, the Ontario Racing Commission has informed the Dresden Agricultural Society that it has decided to delay the issuance of a 2015 Racetrack Operator's License to the agricultural society for Dresden Raceway.

News of the reported delay has come via an article by David Gough for QMI Agency.

The report states that news of the delay came via letter from the ORC to the agricultural society, which took over operation of live racing at Dresden in 2014.

On December 5, 2014, the ORC announced 11 proposed Dresden race dates for the 2015 season. The proposed dates would kick off on May 31 and end on August 3.

On December 19, the ORC announced that the proposed 2015 race date schedule for Dresden had not yet been approved and that the proposed dates were still under review, pending the submission of certain documents.

The QMI Agency article states that the past few months have been ‘tumultuous’ for the agriculture society.
