DOWN TO THE WIRE: In Chicago, Neil Milbert reports Arlington Park is “asking the Illinois Racing Board to permit it to vacate days if an insufficient number of horses are entered for the opening week of the meet, scheduled to start May 3.” Vacating the live racing dates “would enable the track to stay open for simulcasting and betting two premier events in American racing.” But sources said that “without a deal in place, the Kentucky division of the Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association, which represents horsemen at Churchill Downs, won't give its required permission for simulcasting and off-track betting from Churchill Downs, a show of solidarity between the Illinois Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association and Churchill Downs horsemen.” The Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association “could take similar action” (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 4/23).
