URGENT — Action Alert
Horsemen and women – we need you to act NOW! You are likely aware of recurring budget deficits for the Texas Racing Commission, and the agency has failed to make meaningful budget reductions. As a result, there is now a real possibility of DRASTIC cuts to race days at Texas tracks. This is a matter with direct negative effects on everyone involved in the industry.
The time for action is short, with the next meeting of the Texas Racing Commission scheduled for Wednesday, September 20th.
Please call Governor Abbott’s chief of staff, Daniel Hodge, at 512.463.1762 to urge the Governor to take immediate personal action to cut agency expenses and preserve the number of race days to keep our horse industry alive.
Your efforts are vital to preserving Texas breeding and racing, and your prompt participation is most appreciated.
