Northern Horsemen's Association President Bob Bodkin has commented in regard to the 2014 season of racing at Sudbury Downs.

Local horsepeople were frustrated after a meeting this past weekend with officials from the northern Ontario racetrack regarding the 2014 racing season at Sudbury.

Earlier this month, the officials with Sudbury Downs proposed 32 days of racing for Sudbury. The schedule presented by Sudbury pitched opening on Saturday, May 24 and running through to October 11 with Wednesday night cards slated from June 18 through to the end of August.

In an article by the CBC, Bodkin said, "The schedule has us opening May 24. So the track is supposed to be open April 24. But that goes hand-in-hand with us having a deal. So if they don't have a deal, they're not going to open the track."

The CBC report states that a follow up meeting in Sudbury has yet to be scheduled.
