A federal judge has dismissed a case involving a dispute between a company owned by an American Indian tribe and a Kentucky horsemen's group over simulcast signals from Churchill Downs.
A National Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association task force has found no evidence of criminal liability on the part of former officers and the executive director of an affiliate in connection with Century Consultants, a company formed to help Indian casinos land simulcast signals.
Cutbacks in benevolence and backstretch programs, as well as termination of an investigation into alleged financial misdeeds, have been cited as the reason why some members of the Kentucky Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association have called for a new election of the president and board of directors.
The board of directors of the Kentucky Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association has voted to terminate its investigation of monetary transactions between Century Consultants, an organization with close ties to the Kentucky HBPA and Choctaw Racing Services.
The board of directors of the Kentucky Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association on May 13 reinstated executive director Marty Maline, who had been on a paid leave of absence in connection with an internal investigation into the organization's finances.
The National Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association has appointed a task force that will, among other things, investigate what it believes might be potential conflicts of interest by prior officers and representatives from 1999 to 2001.
