Commission Exec. Director Accused Of Intimidation

Published: October 5, 2010 04:01 pm EDT has reported that Indiana Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association Executive Director Eddie Martin has accused Indiana Horse Racing Commission Executive Director Joe Gorajec of intimidation and misconduct.

The article explains that Gorajec allegedly sent the IHRC's director of security to Martin's Florida farm. Martin, who claims that Gorajec is against his policies, has been cited as saying that the IHRC head had no legal power to send the security director to the Florida farm.
