IL horsemen react to veto of gaming bill

Statement from the Dave McCaffrey, President of the Illinois Harness Horseman's Association:

"The Illinois Harness Horseman's Association is disappointed that Governor Quinn today vetoed Senate Bill 1849, our jobs bill. However, we remain dedicated to finding a way to boost purse winnings so Illinois can compete with other horse racing states like Indiana which already has slots at racetracks. The fate of more than 30,000 Illinois jobs are riding on the legislature's action."
