They should try rallying in Springfield.
Monday night on Chicago Tonight 2 republicans said they have not even seen a copy of a gaming bill yet.

No, I wasn't.

Apparently Terry Hunt was there, and I know Old & Slow was going, and probably Donna Lee, just from the harness side. They might be better bets to ask. Over here, I don't know. Janine?

That is because it is a big bill that has something for everybody in gaming or who want to be in gaming.  We are just one part of the puzzle.  This thing is just being finalized this week.  Racing is riding on a wing and a prayer with this legislation.

They're adding too much to the bill. It will never get passed.

I'll add in my 2 cents in addition to what's been posted on the harness side.

It was a great meeting. A dais full of respected leaders in our industry, elected officials and former Rep (now lobbyist) Bob Molaro.

A couple hundred horsemen of both breeds, standing united! A first in this state, and good to see. For years the Legislature has said "come to us when you speak with one voice", well we sure are now. The tracks and horsemen of both breeds are in lockstep in this effort, and if we are successful, it will be due to this unity.

Dave McCaffrey, Lanny Brooks and Mike Campbell spoke factually and forcefully about the issues we all face. Bob Molaro really fired up the crowd with his speech. The Reps spoke about the importance of meeting face-to-face with your Legislators. Rep Lisa Hernandez singled out Standardbred trainer Joe Cassano and Arlington Park for helping her see the significant impact racing has on this state. What a great example of our 2 breeds working together!

Let's keep up the hard work and we will prevail!

Why the rancor? Why shouldn't horsemen of both breeds get along and work together so that WE as an industry can prosper?

nothing wrong with it at all! problem is/was is that its not happening till things are in terrible shape/looking hopeless. you cant go back and change the past yes, but believe me even if things do turn around the amount of greed and stupidy will be overwhelming on both sides once again

I'm not knowledgeable about problems in the past, I've only been racing for about 8 years. Whatever the issues were I hope they are well behind us.

One thing I'll say about the future, though, is once friendships and relationships are built they are tougher to destroy by greed and stupidity, or so I hope Grin

I golf with the Senator that told me that. I'll be sure to let him know some barn lackey hotwalker thinks he knows more than a person voting on the bill.

If you people don't own horses worth more than a nickel you shouldn't be allowed a voice on this matter. There are tackrooms on all the tracks for you gypsies to live in no matter what state you are in.

Unfortunately, you are probably correct on this. These bills inflate to gigantic proportions and then go up in flames like the Hindenburg.

I will absolutely call bullshit on you IRB. There is no way in the world they would ever let a douchbag as big as you get anywhere near a U.S. Senator. Your posts on this forum have proven you to be a worthless POS. PERIOD.

I didn't realize the Illinois Slots at Tracks proposal was being voted on by the U.S. senate.

I have funds and friends. This makes me better than all of you hot walkers.

I know that no slots in Illinois upsets you. It means you only get $3 a head walking. I'm going to ask the mcdonalds in Cicero to eliminate the free wifi so you no longer have Internet access.
