In a last-minute move on Tuesday, outgoing New Jersey acting Gov. Don DiFrancesco vetoed and slashed a purse supplement bill which would have given the horse racing industry $18 million. DiFrancesco cut the appropriation to $6 million, which means that, instead of getting $11.7 million, the Thoroughbred industry will only get $3.9 million. The standardbred industry will get $2.1 million.According to Barbara DeMarco Reiche, lobbyist for the New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association, lawmakers are in the process of filing another bill, one which would give the industry the $11.7 million it had received in 2001.Francis "Bud" Keegan, president of the NJTHA, said that purses would be drastically affected this year if the $11.7 million isn't granted."They'll be low, to put it mildly," he said. "We need the supplement to keep this industry alive before off-track wagering and phone wagering kicks in."Keegan said he hoped that incoming Gov. Jim McGreevey, who takes office on Jan. 15, would see the importance of the full purse supplement.
