Detroit, May 17, 2018 – Northville Downs will move two live racing days in May and June back to Saturdays from Thursdays under an order issued May 10 by Michigan Gaming Control Board Executive Director Richard Kalm. Post time will be noon on Saturday, May 19, and the Saturday, June 9, post time will be announced later.

 

 “The Michigan Harness Horsemen’s Association and horse racing fans requested the change, and the MGCB supports the track’s request for the good of the industry,” said Kalm.

 

Earlier, the track had applied for and received permission to move racing to Thursdays, May 17 and June 7, during the weeks of the final Triple Crown races, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes.

 

Northville Downs will offer standardbred racing on Fridays and Saturdays through Sept. 22. Simulcast wagering is available throughout the year.
