NTRA Adds Oaklawn Park, Tampa Bay Downs

From the NTRA

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) announced today that Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark., and Tampa Bay Downs in Oldsmar, Fla., will be rejoining the NTRA effective January 1, 2003. In addition, the NTRA announced that the Oregon HBPA will also join the organization effective January 1, 2003.

Portland Meadows, the leading horseracing facility in Oregon, is already an NTRA member as a Magna Entertainment Corp.-owned racetrack.

"Increased participation greatly helps our programs, our industry and the fans," said NTRA Commissioner Tim Smith. "We're happy to have Oaklawn Park, Tampa Bay Downs and the Oregon horsemen as members, and we look forward to working with all of them in 2003 and beyond."
