ATTENTION LOUISIANA HORSEMEN

The Horsemen’s Amendment to SB 153 by Senator Martiny was adopted unanimously.  Thank you for contacting the members of the House Administration of Criminal Justice committee and asking them to support Louisiana Horsemen.  A portion of the Sports Gaming conducted at our Race Tracks will now be dedicated to Purses.  Communicating your position to your Representatives is vital to our industry.   Through the hard work of our Members, Board, President, and Staff, Louisiana will continue to be one of the top Horse Racing destinations in North America.  

THANK YOU,
LAHBPA
