It has been reported that officials with the Lakeshore Horse Raceway Group are meeting with members of the Ontario Racing Commission today (Friday, Jan. 31) regarding race dates for 2014 at Leamington Raceway.

An article by Blackburn News has quoted Tom Bain of the Lakeshore group as saying that “There are only so many days that are going to the ‘B-level’ tracks. We’ve certainly asked for our share, but I’m hoping we can get somewhere between 20 and 33.”

The report states that the Lakeshore group is looking for 33 dates for Leamington in 2014.

Bain has been cited as saying that he expects to receive an answer from the ORC in February.
