Welcome to Harness BC - Fraser Downs
EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS MESSAGE CORNER
December 6, 2013
I would personally like to thank everyone who attended or contributed their thoughts at the brainstorming session. Not only were the thoughts and ideas flowing but everyone was very positive and past problems were not brought up.
Rick Mowles gave us an update on how negotiations are going and was very blunt how our revenue streams are trending. Rick indicated that a five year deal was struck with the Thoroughbreds for revenue sharing and because of this the process with race dates and Great Canadian could then proceed. I believe a partial calendar of dates will be released very soon and we will have those for you the minute that happens.
I did a rough survey to find out how many broodmares (and in foal) there are in the province. I was pleasantly surprised to find there are approximately 143 mares with 95 of those in foal. If you feel I might have missed you, please contact the office so I can update my count.
