SPORT, strike over; harness racing begins [MP]

Harnesslink.com (from New Zealand):
Maywood Park, the only Chicagoland racetrack devoted exclusively to live harness racing, begins its 60 consecutive season on Thursday (January 12).

Since 1946 Maywood Park has conducted a live racing meet, the longest in the State of Illinois standardbred history.

After a one-week delay because of horsemen’s strike Maywood Park hosts the first its 2006 programs on January 12 which will be held every Thursday through April and picked up again from June 22 through the end of the year. The Chicago circuit’s half-miler will also be the site of live standardbred racing every Friday through the same time period.
