Suffolk Downs Thoroughbreds May Need Homes-or will be slaughtered Mass. Legislature Fail to pass Simulcast Agreement
Future uncertain for Suffolk, horses
By PAUL DALEY, Sun Racing Writer
Suffolk Race track closes for the 2005 season, but with the simulcast racing bill stalled in the State Legislature for a bundle vote on alternative gaming. Unless a sunset bill is passed, as of January 1, 2006, all 4 MAss. race tracks will be unable to accept wagers. If politics are not resolved, the small race trainer will not be able to keep their horses.
It is estimated by TRF Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation,
that as many as 30 horses will be sold for slaughter.
"Canter Organization of New England is specifically earmarking Suffolk horses for adoption. For information go to the Canter website at www.canterusa.org
"What can we do to help the local horses? For starters, contact the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation at www.trfinc.org
. No donation is too small. Or, if you are able to board a horse, the foundation will work with you. If you love the sport and its participants, it's something to think about, especially around the holidays"

Australian 13 year old girl and her Welsh Pony start 6 week Show Campaign
13 year old Jodi Humphreys rides every second day and said she was looking forward to the shows.
Jodi will represent Western Australia at the Show Horse Council Grand Nationals in Sydney, the most prestigious horse show in Australia.
Jodi's riding teacher Sharon Jarvis said she believed Jodi had a good chance in all her competitions.
"Riding needs a lot of dedication because you not only need to keep yourself fit, but you have to look after the pony and make sure it is in peak condition," she said.

Meeting of the Minds -- Or at Least the Major Players -- on New York Racing - bloodhorse.com
"The session, hosted by the Racing and Gaming Law Program at Albany Law School, did make some progress toward reaching resolutions in several areas, officials said.
Most noteworthy, according to FONYR head Tim Smith, was a consensus that the state needs to adopt a system to permit account wagering by an electronic means, not just the present telephone system. Smith said there was "broad agreement'' by all the stakeholders in such a system that it would be "pro-customer, pro-state and pro-racing reform.'' "
Shalgo- a horse with an unique name
Only 11 days of contact- perhaps 9 days of riding, and this tough girl has softened in spirit and form. Once dashing around corners, falling on the forehand, resisiting the bit and insensitive to my aids, she has not only improved on the aforementioned troubles but has also revealed her abilities to relax and concentrate.(image) (image)
