According to an article by Alex Campbell published earlier this week on BloodHorse.com, the Fort Erie Live Racing Consortium, which operates thoroughbred racing at Fort Erie Race Track, said it has submitted a proposal to the Ontario provincial government's Horse Racing Transition Panel to continue live racing at the track for at least the next three years.

The consortium has asked the government for $7.9 million per year to run 400 races, or $8.7 million to run 500 races for Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses. The consortium has also stipulated that it be an "evergreen"-style agreement by which the province would be required to give three years notice of cancellation.
