Governor Quinn, Illinois; please get the Horse Racing bill out of the gambling bill. Even tho people bet on horses there is so much more involved including rescue of retired horses being saved from slaughter houses. Horse racing involves as much interest as any pet charity in helping to stop tracks from druging these wonderful animals to watching what Trainers and Veterinarian give them. Much income to Illinois is from downstate farms that supply the racing industry. By cutting into racedays the horses will leave and go to another out of state track. It will cut into sales for farmers. So do NOT include Horse Racing in a bill passed after Dec. The date is up in January -14.
