New Jersey voters recently rejected a proposal to expand casino gambling to the northern part of the state. Despite the grassroots efforts of the SBOANJ and its public relations firm MWW, the results did not come as a surprise.

The odds seemed to be stacked against the casino question from the beginning. While the results were devastating to the horsemen and women of New Jersey, the SBOANJ is working hard to come up with an alternate plan to help fund our racing and breeding program.

As soon as the results were reported, SBOANJ President Mark Ford, along with the directors, immediately regrouped to come up with a new course of action to revive racing in the Garden State. They have been attending meetings, contacting legislators and working with MWW to devise a new strategy to help move forward during these critical times.

“We may have lost this battle, but we are not ready to give up, we are determined to continue the fight to keep our industry competitive,” stated Ford.
