PTHA, PA EQUINE COALITION QUESTION LOGIC OF GOVERNOR’S REOPENING STRATEGY By: Tom LaMarra Posted: May 13, 2020 The Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, which represents horsemen at Parx Racing, has questioned the logic of a decision by Gov. Tom Wolf to couple live racing with casinos when it comes to the reopening of businesses in the state. Wolf earlier released a three-phase reopening plan—red, yellow and green—and the businesses or activities that would be included in each one. The racing industry had believed that, if it were to offer live racing with only essential personnel permitted access, it would be classified as yellow. The colors are being

Marshall Gramm is an economics professor at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn., its urban campus renowned for its beauty, its 2,025 students from 46 states and 43 countries celebrated for their community service. Gramm is also an owner of 40 horses in training spread around several American race tracks. There is, however, one track that stands out for Gramm - Parx Racing. ``I consider Parx my home base,’’ Gramm said. ``I’m always looking to bring a good horse to Parx whether I’m buying it at a sale, whether I’m buying it privately or whether I’m claiming it.’’ In fact, Gramm’s Ten Strike Racing was

The PTHA  launched a  video campaign directly aimed at squashing the misconceptions about horse racing in Pennsylvania, specifically focusing on the fact that the Race Horse Development Fund is made possible through ZERO TAX DOLLARS. Check out the first four videos below:

The PTHA, as a member of the Pennsylvania Equine Coalition and representative of the horsemen and women who race at PARX, applaud the decision by the Governor to defer the suspension of racing. As the Pennsylvania Equine Coalition and the Wolf administration continue to finalize the details of a long term solution to the preservation of horse racing, the PTHA acknowledges the significant progress achieved by the hard work and dedication of the Pennsylvania Equine Coalition. The PTHA further recognizes and firmly believes that a united industry committed to the long term viability and importance of the racing industry to the economy of the

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

THE DEADLINE HAS ALREADY PASSED. WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED ON OUR PROGRESS WITH THIS ISSUE. In response to efforts spearheaded by the NTRA, the United States Department of the Treasury and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are considering changes to reporting and withholding requirements related to pari-mutuel winnings. The changes would positively impact all levels of horseplayers, regardless of whether a person wagers $1, $100 or $1,000. For example, the amount wagered by a Pick Six player who hits with one of 140 combinations on a $1-minimum wager would be $140, which is the total amount bet into the Pick Six pool. Currently the

In the next few days, you may be receiving a ballot for the election of the President and Board of Directors of the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association. As the saying goes “elections have consequences”. We agree. While we might not normally involve ourselves in a local election, the consequences of this election have the potential, like no other, to affect all horsemen and we feel compelled to speak. Rick Violette has been a consequential and influential voice for horsemen, both locally and nationally, for 20 years. His selfless and tireless devotion to the best interests of his

HARRISBURG, PA - The Pennsylvania Equine Coalition today applauded the release of a report by Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale that detailed how $6 million in inappropriate charges to State Racing Fund were the result of overbilling to cover budget shortfalls and personnel costs that were not related to the operations of the state's racing commissions. The report was also critical of the General Assembly's diversion of the $212 million from a separate fund, the Race Horse Development Fund (RHDF), since 2010 for purposes of addressing state funding shortfalls in other areas. The Pennsylvania Equine Coalition is a statewide group representing more than
