Horse Racing Industry Positively Impacts Pennsylvania

PA Equine Coalition Highlights Benefits of Horse Racing and Breeding to the State

With three thoroughbred racetracks, 3,000 horse farms, and some of the best veterinary schools in the United States, Pennsylvania exemplifies the value of horse racing and breeding.  This brief video from the Pennsylvania Equine Coalition details the benefits that the horse racing industry has on the economy, job sector, and agriculture.  Act 71, the Racehorse Development and Gaming Act of 2004, has helped the PA horse industry become worth upwards of $10 billion.  This video demonstrates how certain changes threaten to lessen the benefits of this industry, and what can be done to keep it intact.
