Halsey Minor is the largest delinquent taxpayer in California, but that isn’t stopping his horse racing business from attempting buy more race tracks.

Minor Racing, LLC has offered $150-170 million in cash for the racing assets of MI Developments, which includes the famed Santa Anita horse track, among others facilities.

Minor and his wife are listed as owing $13.1 million in personal income taxes and disputes with auction houses Sotheby’s and Christie’s (as well as a lawsuit with Merrill Lynch) have left him with most of his income frozen and liens on his property.
