Joseph Appelbaum President NYTHA

"Thoroughbred horsemen in New York have significant assets to build from—thousands of members representing successful people and engaged Thoroughbred enthusiasts from around the world, a first-class philanthropy program and significant economic activity manifested by thousands of jobs and billions of dollars within New York State. Our job is to leverage these assets to create a better value proposition for all horsemen: owners and trainers, large operations and small."

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."

Dennis Drazin CEO Darby Development

“Everyone’s hard work and dedication were on full display for the court, who I am cautiously optimistic will see things in our favor and the will of the people of New Jersey, who overwhelmingly voted in favor of sports betting, will soon come to fruition.”
