According to a report, the Dresden Agricultural Society (DAS) has announced that it is missing $53,000 and that the money has gone missing in the last month.

An article by the Chatham-Kent Sports Network explains that news of the missing funds was announced Wednesday (January 28) during the Dresden Agricultural Society’s annual general meeting.

The report also states that over the past several months the entire DAS Board of Directors was dismissed. The article also states that DAS President Lucille Laprise had been dismissed before being reinstated.

The Dresden Agricultural Society took over operation of live racing at Dresden in 2014.

It was reported earlier this month that 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.

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.
