Racehorse Retirement in Focus at the Spa

The New York State Gaming Commission is hosting a one day summit dedicated to the status of programs geared to the retirement of horses in New York as well as nationally in Saratoga Springs tomorrow (September 1).  One of the goals of this summit is to show how far racing has come since the state's task force on retired racehorses had issued its recommendations back in 2011.

Looking at the tentative agenda, it looks like the thoroughbred industry has come a lot further than the standardbred industry but we remain optimistic that real progress has been made.
