Peggy Powell SAID...

Just think about it. New York modelled their racinos after Ontario's SAR . The Conservative government at the time has secured the well being and stability of horse racing every where but where it all began. Thanks to the Liberals. Send this to everyone you know.

Dave Nicol SAID...

As always Lynne has a handle on the good, the bad and the ugly! I agree with her most of the time. My question is where are all our organizations that should have prepared and distributed the same type of video to our own misinformed and forgotten populace? If you don*t feel tears forming watching this well produced documentary then you need help! If we use the New York video as a template and present it Ontario wide I along with many others would make the marketing costs available. Somebody please think and act outside the box! We as an industry deserve much better than we*ve received up till now! We have proven in the past we can compete with any other jurisdiction in the world. Forget our individual unhappiness and concentrate on all the out of work people involved!PLEASE!

January 30, 2013 - 10:10 amHow many times could one

Lynne Magee SAID...

How many times could one substitute "Ontario" for "New York"? Great video. Now if we can only get it into mainsteam media to educate the vast majority of people who haven't a clue about the value of horse racing in North America or the problems that we are facing on both sides of the border.
