Senate Committee Will Hear Testimony Supporting Historical Horse Racing Bill Thursday

Today at 11 am EST, the Kentucky State Senate Committee on Licensing & Occupations will hear testimony in support of Senate Bill 120, legislation to keep historical horse racing in Kentucky.

The legislation was introduced earlier this week by Senator John Schickel and Senate President Robert Stivers and is backed by a broad coalition of horse industry, business, economic development and tourism organizations, including the Kentucky Equine Education Project (KEEP), which released a statement on the bill earlier this week.

SB 120 seeks to address a recent Supreme Court ruling by maintaining the status quo Kentucky has known for the past decade so that historical horse racing can continue in our state. HHR has led to significant job creation, community investment and economic development in communities across the commonwealth.

Testimony will be provided by:

  • Sen. John Schickel, bill sponsor
  • Kelli Pendleton, president/CEO, Christian County Chamber of Commerce
  • Tom Drury, horse trainer
  • Marc Guilfoil, Kentucky Horse Racing Commission

The committee will meet in Annex Room 171 in Frankfort and will be streamed live at ket.org/legislature.
