This past May 2nd was not just synonymous as Kentucky Derby day, but a little closer to home; it also marked the first day of racing for Fort Erie Racetrack’s 2009 season. A couple of weeks after the track’s opening, the following interview was conducted with James Thibert, President and General Manager of the Fort Erie Economic Development and Tourism Corporation (EDTC) who are spearheading the not-for-profit Fort Erie Thoroughbred Racing Consortia’s offer to purchase the track. Jim provided an update on racing in the town of Fort Erie for this season, and for the future.

However, since this interview was conducted, it has been reported that the Fort Erie EDTC has been able to find several potential investor-developer parties who have shown an interest in the possibility of partnering with the not-for-profit Consortia, or perhaps make an offer to track owners, Nordic Gaming Corporation, in their own right as owners.

Calvin, can you take us through the trip on Mine That Bird?

This interview was conducted by ThoroughbredStyle Magazine, and first appeared in the May/June Issue.

Known to many as Keith Partridge of the 1970s TV show The Partridge Family, by the time he was 21, David Cassidy had become the highest-paid solo performer in the world and had a fan club larger than Elvis Presley’s or the Beatles’. What followed were Broadway performances in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Blood Brothers, several television appearances, concert tours and worldwide record sales exceeding 35 million copies. During this time period as well, David also stamped himself as a significant owner and breeder of Thoroughbred racehorses, and is a regular visitor to the Saratoga race meet during the summer months.
