The Race Track Industry Program asked 'What’s on your mind?' and the racing industry has responded with a number of topics which have been integrated into the Symposium on Racing & Gaming agenda, thus ensuring that the organization has the 'right talk' at this year’s event
The issue most requested centered around medication and drug testing, thus confirming the decision to include it in the line-up and driving its expansion not only in scope but the amount of time allotted to it.
Interest was very high in the area of wagering, especially with international opportunities and new concepts such as single-pool wagering --- these topics are key elements in a session examining new wagering platforms. The request to look at racehorse ownership, and, in effect, profile who the owners are and what they want --- or need --- to stay in the game hit the agenda, as did a session dedicated to fan education.
The Race Track Industry Program has gained worldwide recognition for its annual Symposium on Racing & Gaming held in Tucson, Arizona each December since 1974. The event attracts attendees from across the United States and around the globe with cutting-edge topics and trends of importance to the pari-mutuel industry.
