Sports Creek Raceway General Manager Chris Locking has said that the Michigan racetrack is closing and is seeking interested buyers.

News of the closure comes courtesy of a report by which has quoted Locking as saying, "it's time to go another direction and hopefully it will turn out to be on a brighter side."

Locking was also quoted as saying that "Racetracks in Michigan haven't been making money for at least five or six years, or more."

In late December the Michigan Gaming Control Board issued a cease and desist order that instructed Sports Creek Raceway to cease all live and simulcast pari-mutuel wagering effective January 1. The order was issued in anticipation of Sports Creek not having a 2015 contract with a certified horsemen’s organization by the December 31 deadline specified in law.
