Looks like four organizations have submitted their formal requests to build, own and operate a top notch horse racing facility in or near Edmonton, that could replace Northlands Park.
Six organizations were invited to submit an application for horse racing.
Enoch Cree Nation, Alberta Downs, Century Casinos Inc., FNH Development Corp., Siksika Resource Development Ltd., and Yurwynn Entertainment Group Inc., were on the list of six. It’s not known which four groups sent in an RFP.
An independent committee will now take a look at the applications, before making recommendations to the board of Horse Racing Alberta.
The process is expected to be wrapped up by the middle of September.
Northlands announced in February, that this is its final year in the horse racing business. tl/rk
