Sometimes the number of weasel words in a press release from Kentucky state government makes me wonder why they bother saying anything.
The Kentucky Horse Racing Authority (KHRA) at its next meeting will be asked by its chairman to consider forming a work group to review thoroughbred horse racing health and safety concerns.
Robert M. Beck Jr., appointed KHRA chairman last month by Governor Steve Beshear, said the proposed work group will look at several issues and bring recommendations to the authority.
“I envision the group would assemble information that has already been prepared by other organizations and assess the need for additional work on safety issues,” Beck said. “We also want to work with other industry organizations, owners, breeders, trainers and jockeys to make improvements to the racing community.”
So let me get this straight you are thinking about creating a committee to rehash old information and keep everyone involved happy.
If anything makes a case for taking the regulation of Thoroughbred Racing away from the states and giving it to national regulating body it is drivel like this.
