The Ohio racing commission has failed to do their stated mission: "dedicated to the protection, preservation and promotion of horse racing and its related industry components. . . . shall use its best efforts to promote horse racing and breeding TO THE CITIZENS OF OHIO". Having said that, it seem the trainers should also be Ohio citizens, that is, permanent residents. Trainers hire grooms and second trainers, buy hay, feed, straw in Ohio, rent stalls, build barns, etc., and pay taxes in Ohio. So not only owned and bred in Ohio, but also trained in Ohio.  This idea has been tossed around for a few years, but the OSRC has done nothing to mandate this, and consequently nothing to promote racing for the citizens of Ohio.  If anyone reading this is serious about stopping what is going on in Ohio, contact the OSRC. The number is 614-466-2757.  We cannot change the rules this year, but changes are badly needed to keep harness racing in Ohio - even for the little guys.
Totally agree. Ohio horseman need to wise up to the fact that their livelihood is methodically being taken from them. If people from other states want to spend their money at Ohio casinos that's fine. But that money allocated to Ohio racing should be used to promote Ohio.

just another commission that has failed
of course it depends where you are in the pecking order in ohio
right now breeders are loving burke and others bidding up their horses, especially the seasides
and the drivers will gladly drive one of the many burke horses in each race
but the other  trainers and smaller owners are getting crushed
so some breeders and drivers enjoying the ride, other small breeders and trainers not so much
and now and more so in the next few years the prices for poorly bred ohio horses will sell for nothing because people know they can beat burke

protection - drug testing program is horrible
protection - does the customer feel protected ?  ( speaking of the gambler although horsemen feel like they are
     the customer )
Promotion --- What a Joke...
   Allow tracks to switch to day time / week day racing --- that's promoting
   Allow Miami Valley to build a flat grandstand... There's promoting the product, look up and watch it on TV
   Allow Scioto for YEEEEEEeeeears get away with no grandstand.

Racing Comission are a bunch state politicians that like bobble heads, nod their heads up and down to whatever the casino wants.
For that Matter -- OHHA is not much different. Wouldn't it be beneficial to try and grow the product ? Isn't that the goal of any business ? Yet in harness racing in
Ohio -- we continue to go backwards.
race afternoon
race weekdays only
facilities are a dump -- been to Northfield ? If your answer was I was there 20 years ago, bingo, it hasn't changed.
Protections of local Ohio Horsemen ?  ngc3

You hillbillies just figuring this out, you had your heads in your asses for years. It's ok for Ohio owners to go to any other state but if you are not a resident of Ohio you can't race. That is just plain STUPID. What you expect from the state that gave us Roger the louse

The casino subsidies are the only reason this dying industry isn't back to being just a fair pastime.

Nothing will improve if the horsemen and women don't do anything. Everyone is busy but this is very important to each of you if you train or race in Ohio. OHHA website has contact information for the board of directors and each district's director. Racing commission also has contact information. Make a call, write a letter, send an e-mail. Get off your duffs, quit standing around the paddocks and complaining and do something constructive! Like was said above, the racing commission allowed Scioto Downs blow smoke in their faces for years. It's time they are held accountable to cooperate with horsemen and promote Ohio racing, not give it away.  Only the horsemen can do it.
