hi ---  well horse racing is a industry where many people are employed. vets, blacksmiths, hot walkers,  grooms , people who work in the grand stands. there are many breeding farms all over the states who employ people, so you see horse racing does help the economy..it is also a wonderful sport that thousands of people take part in every year. there is the biggest race in the country the Kentucky derby draws thousands of people for just that one race. just think of all the money made that one day. hope that helps you. thanks ED HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
