        On Saturday, April 12, 2014, Hazel Park Raceway will begin its live harness racing season. The meet will run through Saturday, May 3, 2014. Qualifying races are scheduled to be held through Tuesday, April 29 depending on the number of entrants.

On January 21, 2014, the Executive Director of the Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB”) issued an executive order that granted Hazel Park Raceway live harness and thoroughbred racing dates divided into two “meets” during 2014. This Saturday’s event marks the beginning of the first  meet, consisting of harness racing, while a thoroughbred meet will be held at the track from June 29, 2014 to October 11, 2014. The track has been awarded a total of 42 race dates for the year.

The Michigan Harness Horseman’s Association, representing the interests of standardbred racing, has filed a lawsuit against the Executive Director of the MGCB regarding the issuance of the January executive order, as well as a similar executive order issued regarding Northville Downs. For more information on the lawsuit, please refer to Issue 10, Volume 20 of The Michigan Gaming Newsletter, available here: http://www.michigangaming.com/publications/newsletter-archive/2014?view=archive&month=3
