County Commissioners Reject Latest Bid to Reopen Les Bois

Posted By on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 at 11:41 AM

While the Idaho Legislature considers a bill that would presumably make it easier for an operator to revive horse racing at Les Bois Park, Ada County Commissioners have rejected a bid to reopen the Garden City facility.

Commissioners voted unanimously to reject a proposal from Treasure Valley Racing LLC based on five factors, including an insufficient cash bond of $10,000, a request for a lease longer than five years and unacceptable rent terms.

Commissioners urged the group to return to the bargaining table in an effort to hammer out a more acceptable offer.
