Federal Legislative Advocacy

The NTRA’s federal legislative advocacy team addresses issues that have a direct and material effect on Thoroughbred industry participants and their business activities, whether those activities relate to racing, breeding or pari-mutuel wagering.

Along with other industry stakeholder groups inside and outside of racing, the NTRA also supports Congressional education programs on matters like agriculture and immigration which affect all breeds and equine disciplines.

Two programs support the NTRA’s work on Capitol Hill.  The Legislative Action Campaign sustains the NTRA’s government relations and lobbying efforts.  NTRA’s political action committee, Horse PAC®, supports specific candidates for re-election.  Sellers and buyers at public auction, sales companies, owners, farms and horseplayers contribute to the Legislative Action Campaign.  Horse PAC® contributions come from individual NTRA members.

TESTIMONIALS

For our industry, it is fundamental for us to have eyes, ears and voice monitoring the activity in Washington. NTRA has provided this leadership and for that I am most appreciative and strong support their efforts.
Headley Bell of Mill Ridge Farm, Lexington KY
Our farm lives are demanding enough. It’s good to know that the NTRA is there to promote our legislative needs. They have my continued support.
Scott Mallory of Mallory Farms, Lexington, KY
It is of vital importance that every segment of this wonderful industry support the legislative efforts of the NTRA on a national scene. Things just don’t happen and we industry stakeholders need to be supportive of groups that see to it that the right things do happen. As a longtime owner/breeder, I have always found the NTRA to be responsive and always taking a leadership role. I do support their efforts and thank them.
Donald Valpredo of Donald Valpredo Farms, Bakersfield, CA
As hard as those of us in the industry are working each day on our farms, we can’t forget how important it is to have a ‘sixth man’ like the NTRA supporting our team in Washington.
Josh Pons of Country Life Farm & Merryland Farm, Bel Air, MD
