Frank Fabian, president of the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau, addressed last year's banning of several jockeys while one of the riders, Terry Houghton, is scheduled to appear before the Michigan Racing Commission June 28 for an investigatory hearing.
The Michigan Racing Commission has named Adam Campola, the clerk of scales at the major Maryland tracks since 2000, steward at Great Lakes Downs. The six-month meeting opens May 6.
Despite a 6% overall decline in total wagering, Michigan tracks posted a strong last quarter for calendar 2001 with total wagering up 3.2% for the period of Oct. 1 through Dec. 31, 2001, an increase of $2.7 million as compared to the same period a year ago.
