On July 17, there is a public comment hearing in Austin on the subject of pari-mutuel wagering on historical racing in Texas. There will be no TRC Commissioners present at this meeting. TRC staff will compile a report to present to the Commissioners for their information, prior to the regularly scheduled TRC meeting in August.
Horsemen do not need to be present at the July 17 meeting. However, we do need as many horsemen in attendance as possible at the August meeting.
