"Without New York's horses, and the owners and trainers who support them, Belmont Park is just a great place to practice your yodeling. We are the Yankees of New York Racing."

Alan Foreman Chairman THA

"We believe (out-of-competition testing) should become the fifth prong of the National Uniform Medication Program and intend to support its swift enactment in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern regions."

Mike Campbell President ITHA

"It's very important that we have protected racing opportunities."
