On March 25, 2014, the Michigan Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (“MHBPA”) announced that the Isabella County Fair Expo Board and a group of quarter horse men and women have entered into an agreement to convert and conduct Mount Pleasant Meadows as a training facility. According to the MHBPA, the track and barn areas will be maintained by the County.

Stalls will be available beginning Tuesday, April 1, 2014 at a cost of $1 per day. The MHBPA feels the new facility will be a benefit to many mid-state trainers who will race at Michigan’s horse tracks.

Notably, on February 12, 2014, the Executive Director of the Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB”) issued an order accepting Mount Pleasant Meadows’ (“MPM”) voluntary surrender of its 2014 Mixed Breed Race Meeting License and its 2014 Simulcast Permit. According to an MGCB press release issued on February 13, 2014, the license and permit were surrendered “after MPM’s Lender Group discontinued funding for simulcast operations.” MPM will maintain its Track License as it seeks new funding for operations.
