Illinois Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association (11/17)
Conference Call with IL Dept. of Ag
ITHA, in conjunction with Hawthorne Race Course, has scheduled a conference call with the Illinois Department of Agriculture to discuss the EHV outbreak at Hawthorne. Expected participants in the call from the Department are Larry O'Brien, Chief Policy Advisor, Mark Ernst, DVM, Bureau Chief of Animal Health and Welfare, and Charlyn Fargo, Bureau Chief of County Fairs and Horse Racing.
ITHA members that have specific questions they would like us to ask during the call, please submit them to me by 9:00 am on Monday. Send questions to Mike@ITHARacing.com, or drop off your questions at the ITHA trailer on the backside of Hawthorne between 7 am and 2 pm. We will do our best to get as many questions answered in the time we have. Hopefully all of our concerns and questions will be addressed.
We expect to post a phone number by Monday morning that ITHA members can call to listen in to the conference call, which will originate at the ITHA trailer.
We will continue to post updates on our website, www.itharacing.com.
Mike Campbell, ITHA President
