Important Notice: Make Your Voice Heard!

Dear PTHA Members,

We need your support! State legislators in Harrisburg are trying to amend the Gaming Act with a bevy of gambling expansion ideas that would drive people away from horse racing facilities.

Make your voice heard!


— or give them a call today.

This amendment to the Gaming Act will hurt a growing breeding and racing industry that has created 23,000 jobs and invests millions into local communities, farms, and the Pennsylvania economy every year.

If some legislators have their way, they’ll expand gaming practically everywhere to include liquor establishments, fire halls, truck stops, video gaming terminals in taverns, and more. There’s even a plan to allow for internet gaming at a much lower tax rate. That means casinos with racetracks are more likely to market internet gaming at the expense of our racetracks!

We must act now! Contact your local legislators today and tell them to oppose legislation that would expand gaming and hurt Pennsylvania’s breeding and racing industry.
