The Colorado Horse Racing Association sent out a request on it's Facebook to get it's supporters to encourage your state reps to support HB12-1280, which is VLT's at the track (good marketing that on their page they state the bill is to support college scholarships).

I must confess that I have not read the bill, and am as ignorant as most of the public, but call me cynical, I don't think VLTs will "save" Colorado racing by just giving the tracks and owners/breeders more money without help for bettors (as well as possibly retired horses and disabled jockeys).

Here's the FB link for those who would like to comment or send an email to the appropriate legislator.

Thanks for that Chris. Similar is happening in Kentucky.
