Quote from United Florida Horsemen on today’s Gadsden County slot referendum (1/31):

“Notwithstanding the fact that the Gadsden County Slot referendum was held based the unlawful premise of “pari-mutuel barrel racing,” the travesty is that, regardless, of tonight’s outcome, the people of Gadsden County and the City of Gretna are being cheated out of exponentially jobs and long-term economic development they could have had if Gretna Racing LLC were holding legitimate Quarter Horse racing instead. For those who doubt that fact, the truth is now in the numbers: Real Quarter Horse racing at Hialeah Park has out-earned and outperformed Gretna’s “pari-mutuel barrel racing” by over 99 percent—all with no cardrooms, slots or bailout from the taxpayers of Florida. As for job creation? Hialeah has over 800 employees who received their pari-mutuel license at the facility. Gretna has only 38. Proof that real jobs created by real horse racing are something slot machines can never replace.”
