Dear all,

We need your support of Historical Horse Racing in Kentucky.On Tuesday of this week (Feb. 2), Senate Bill 120, which protects historical horse racing (HHR) in Kentucky, was introduced in the Kentucky General Assembly.

Historical horse racing fuels Kentucky’s signature horse industry, strengthens purse money for racing, provides valuable jobs and generates millions in tax revenue to benefit investments across the Commonwealth. A recent ruling by the Kentucky Supreme Court has put historical horse racing and Kentucky’s equine industry in jeopardy.

The time is now to help our efforts by contacting your representatives in the Kentucky legislature and urging them to pass SB 120. If you are not a resident of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, we need your help as well. Your voice is critical to ensure historical horse racing continues in Kentucky and to protect much-needed jobs and investment.

HERE’S HOW TO HELP

1. Contact your Kentucky legislative representatives by clicking this link. Be sure to follow the proper path if you live outside of Kentucky.

2. Let them know how important HHR is to Kentucky and to protecting valuable jobs and our signature horse industry.

3. Ask them to pass SB 120 to allow HHR facilities to continue operations.

The Kentucky Harness Association (KHA) appreciates your support and action in saving historical horse racing. If you are not already a member, please click here to join the KHA.
