Stronach Announces Support for Horseracing Integrity Act

April 26, 2017
Frank Stronach, Honorary Chairman and Founder of The Stronach Group, announced his support for legislation that will create a uniform, nationwide, and conflict-free drug testing enforcement program for horseracing.  The announcement came on Wednesday, April 26, a day after a group of industry leaders met in Lexington, Ky.

The legislation, known as The Horseracing Integrity Act, is to be formally introduced in the House of Representatives in the coming days.  Kentucky Congressman Andy  Barr and New York Congressman Paul Tonko are the co-sponsors.

Stronach made the commitment on behalf of The Stronach Group, one of the world’s leading racetrack operators and suppliers of pari-mutuel wagering technology.

“I believe, in the long run, no race day medication is better for the horses and for the industry,” said Stronach in his announcement.  “As a racetrack owner, I realize we have to make changes to get the horseracing industry on a sound and healthy foundation.”

“There are few people more committed to the future of horseracing in North America than Frank Stronach,” said Congressman Barr. “To have someone of his stature endorse this legislation puts the Horseracing Integrity Act on a clear path toward success.”

Report: R.D Hubbard To Sell Ruidoso Downs

A group of five highly-successful businessmen who are heavily vested in the breeding and racing of American Quarter Horses and R.D. Hubbard have all signed a letter of intent that involves Hubbard selling Ruidoso Downs Race Track and the Ruidoso Horse Sale Company to the group.

The individuals in the group are Stan Sigman, Gary McKinney, Narciso (Chicho) Flores, Johnny Trotter (all from Texas) and John Andreini of California.

Hubbard, 81, bought Ruidoso Downs in 1988 with Dr. Ed Allred, who also owns Los Alamitos Race Course in California. Hubbard later purchased Allred’s interest in the Ruidoso facility.

The prospective ownership group met Saturday morning in Oklahoma City and elected Sigman as its chairman.

“We are about to start our due diligence, and in due time we will start the process of gaining regulatory approval,” said Sigman. “It is our goal to close the deal in the fourth quarter of 2017.

“It was five people who did this,” said Sigman. “I’m just the spokesperson because I’m the chairman and speak on behalf of the five people. These five people have a passion for horseracing. They have a passion for the horses and all of the people in the industry. The best example I can give is that when we are in Ruidoso we worship at the (race track) Chapel because we want to worship with the people.”

On Sunday morning, Ruidoso Downs president and general manager Shaun Hubbard said, “These men know Ruidoso Downs, and they are committed to keeping it as the best place in the nation for Quarter Horse racing.”

R.D. Hubbard, an internationally acclaimed businessman, has been a leading Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse owner and breeder for decades and has had ownership in such other tracks as Hollywood Park, Los Alamitos, Zia Park, Turf Paradise and The Woodlands in addition to Ruidoso Downs. Hubbard owned a farm in Kentucky for many years and now has his Crystal Springs Farm located just a short drive from Ruidoso Downs. “Nothing will change at Crystal Springs, except maybe putting an All American Futurity winner in one of the paddocks,” Hubbard said.

“I’m not about to quit racing. I still need to win the All American Futurity. We’re still breeding mares and still making babies” said Hubbard. “I’ll be at the sales this year buying horses.”

During Hubbard’s ownership, the Grade 1 All American Futurity grew from a $2,000,000 purse in 1989 to $3,000,000 last year. The Grade 1 All American Derby went from $330,812 in 1989 to $2,415,984 last year.

The Grade 1 Ruidoso Futurity zoomed from $357,172 in 1989 (when it was the Kansas Futurity) to $1,000,000 in 2016. The Grade 1 Ruidoso Derby (formerly the Kansas Derby) went from $44,986 in 1989 to $1,068,631 in 2016.

The Grade 1 Rainbow Futurity was $447,630 during the first year Hubbard owned the track. In 2016, it was $1,000,000. In the same time the Grade 1 Rainbow Derby jumped from $398,231 to $1,324,488.

Under Hubbard’s ownership, the Ruidoso Horse Sales Company has become the nation’s number-one seller (in dollar volume and average price) of racing bred American Quarter Horse yearlings.

Horses began entering the grounds this morning at Ruidoso Downs and the track opens for training on Friday. The Quarter Horse gates will be set next Monday (May 1), which is also the date for entry into the May 8-10 two-year-old training races. The meet opens on May 26.

Florida Legislature Making ‘Substantial’ Push To Get Gambling Deal Completed In Current Session

In a push to finally get a gambling bill approved during the current legislative session, the Florida House of Representatives made a few major offers during a session held Wednesday morning.

The SaintPetersBlog reports that the House has agreed to allow ‘decoupling’, which would permit pari-mutuel racetracks to stop offering live horse or dog racing, but keep their slots licenses if approved by local voters.

Only Calder among Florida’s Thoroughbred tracks would be allowed to decouple, according to current language in the negotiations, which also includes Thoroughbred “purse pools” created through contributions of other gambling entities.

The House bill does not appear to expand slots to eight counties with pari-mutuel wagering (including the flag-drop racing in Gretna and Hamilton county), and where local voters have already approved via referendum. It does permit a new South Florida slots parlor, provided it is at least five miles from an existing casino, and allows the Seminole tribe to add caps and roulette to its seven casinos throughout the state.

The Florida Senate’s gambling bill also permits decoupling but expands gambling dramatically by permitting slots in eight counties north of Dad and Broward counties.

Republican Senator and conference chair Bill Galvano called the House proposal “serious” and “substantial”.

Robby Albarado

Jockey Robby Albarado sustained a fracture of his lower left tibia and fibula after falling from Chiltern Street at the beginning of the eighth race at Keeneland April 23 and will be off mounts for approximately three to four weeks, including Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) hopeful J Boys Echo, agent Rob Ebanks said.

The 5-year-old horse stumbled at the start of the 5 1/2-furlong race on turf unseating Albarado, who was immdiately attended to on the track. After being taken to first aid at Keeneland, he was then transported to UK Chandler Hospital.

In an official statement, Keeneland medical director Dr. Barry Schumer said: “Robby’s horse stumbled at the start of the race and Robby was thrown to the ground. He braced himself. He suffered an injury to his left ankle. He is being transported to UK Chandler Hospital (at the University of Kentucky in Lexington) for X-rays and further evaluation.”

Albarado underwent surgery April 24 at UK Chandler Hospital and had a rod and two pins inserted in his lower left leg, per Ebanks.

Young Sires Highlight Equine Sales Company 2-Year-Old Catalog
 
Equine Sales Company has released a catalog of 67 head for its 2-Year-Olds in Training and Horses of Racing Age Sale set for May 9 in Opelousas, Louisiana. The breeze show is scheduled for May 7.
While the catalog has a strong offering of established stallions, it also stands out for its selection of young sires with promising futures like Orb, Violence, Bullet Train, Power Broker, Jimmy Creed, Flashpoint, Data Link, Flat Out, To Honor and Serve, Tapizar, Point of Entry, Bind, Dialed In and Redding Colliery.
The catalog also includes many of the leading juvenile and overall sires in Louisiana, including Yankee Gentleman, Songandaprayer, Star Guitar, Custom for Carlos, D’Wildcat, Closing Argument and Run Production. Prominent national sires are also represented, including Tale of the Cat, Eskendereya, Dunkirk, Discreet Cat, Lookin at Lucky and El Corredor, a former leading stallion in Louisiana.
“The catalog is comprised mainly of Louisiana-breds, and that remains the main focus of the sale, but we also have some nice Kentucky-breds this year,” said Sales Director Foster Bridewell. “We are still accepting supplements, and I expect several more horses to be added in the coming weeks.”
All graduates of the sale will be eligible for the $75,000 Equine Sales Derby and $75,000 Equine Sales Oaks to be run in 2018 at Evangeline Downs.

IMMEDIATE LEGISLATIVE ACTION NEEDED! SB226. HB585. HB588.

Dear Breeders,

There are several items proposed in the current Louisiana Legislative Session which will have an immediate negative impact on our industry. SB226, HB585, HB588, would redirect 50%-100% of video poker and slots at the racetrack, purse supplements, and breeders incentive awards out of current dedicated funding.

Our most effective defense against these devastating actions is for as  many of our members as possible to contact your state representatives and senators.  Below I have outlined several talking points with which to persuade your legislators in our favor.

Talking points.

  • The breeding and racing incentive program does not cost the state treasury any money. All money is derived from video poker franchise fees and slots at the racetracks. Some of the money comes from out of state patrons.
  • The total direct injection of revenue from the Louisiana horse racing industry into Louisiana’s economy for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016 was $578 million.
  • When both direct and indirect impacts are included, the Louisiana’s horse racing industry generated $1.047 billion in total output.
  • Louisiana horse racing created a total of 12,640 Louisiana jobs.
  • This translates into $328 million in earnings generated during the most recent year.
  • Louisiana received over $64 million directly from the horse industry in state taxes during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016.
  • When taxes generated indirectly are included, state tax revenues from horse racing are over $73 million.

The bills and their specifics are listed below:
SB226

Eliminates certain statutory dedication of Video Draw Poker Device Purse Supplement Fund and Pari-mutuel Live Racing Facility Gaming Control Fund and all recipient funds.
Negative impact: Takes all money from racing and breeding incentive program.

HB 588
Author: Representative Jay Morris
http://house.louisiana.gov/H_Reps/members.aspx?ID=14

The Bill is referred to the Appropriations Committee.
Click here for a list of Committee members
http://house.louisiana.gov/H_Cmtes/Appropriations.aspx

Proposes that 50% of video poker funds be used for TOPS.

  • The negative impact is a loss of thousands of jobs.
  • It would decrease purse supplements by $ 1million currently directed to Louisiana bred only horses. Most of these horses are bred by Louisiana citizens.
  • It would result in smaller purses in races restricted to Louisiana bred horses.
  • Diminished purse money means less money won by Louisiana horse breeders and owners.

It would result in a significant decrease in the need to buy and race Louisiana bred horses.
It would decrease revenue to breeders and owners that would result in a proportionate job loss.

HB 585
Author: Representative Jay Morris http://house.louisiana.gov/H_Reps/members.aspx?ID=14

The Bill is referred to the Appropriations Committee.
Click here for a list of Committee members
http://house.louisiana.gov/H_Cmtes/Appropriations.aspx

Proposes that 50% of slot revenue from the racetracks be used for TOPS.

  • All of the above applies at a much larger negative impact to the horse industry and reduction of jobs statewide in Louisiana.
  • Guts the racing industry and resulting horse industry.
  • Potential exit of national race track owners in Louisiana that could result in the industry returning to pre-slots at the track conditions: the industry was dying and on the verge of closing.

In the past, because you have taken an active role, we have been able to put the brakes on legislation that has targeted our monies. The power of numbers is much stronger than one individual. I am asking you to once again be active participants in safeguarding the thoroughbred industry in Louisiana. We sincerely appreciate your continued support!
