New York Horse Industry Survey Under Way

The information will be used to show importance of equine industry to state.

The New York Thoroughbred Breeders is urging horse industry stakeholders to take part in a survey it says will help "display the importance of the equine industry to New York's economy."

The NYTB is a founding member of the New York Horse Racing and Agriculture Alliance, whose mission is to protect the interests of racing and agriculture as the state considers approval of full-scale, non-tribal casinos. The state's racetracks have video lottery terminals but have expressed interest in expanding their offerings.

The NYTB said all information provided via the online survey will be confidential. The survey is available at this link.
