Congratulations to KHC Member
Erin Glassman!

Congratulations to Erin Glassman and her mare, Rio, on completion of the Tevis Cup Endurance Race! The Tevis is 100-miles through rugged terrain, this year starting at Lake Tahoe and finishing up near Auburn, California. The race is completed in less than 24 hours, and only a little over 50% of horse/rider teams make it to the finish line. This was Erin’s and Rio’s first Tevis!! Photo courtesy of Bill Gore Photography.

Legislative Update

Describing the past legislative session as a whirlwind is an understatement! Without the support of fellow race fans–providing feedback, contacting legislators, being eyes and ears on the ground, and so much more–the Greater Kansas Racing Alliance could not have accomplished so much.

The legislative session is over, and the racing bill didn’t pass. What now? The race isn’t over, and the bill isn’t dead. Kansas operates its legislative cycles on a two-year basis, so the bill is on the docket for next session. The Alliance intends to hit the ground running next year. We’ll continue working on a compromise and refining our strategy.

Continue talking to legislators and attend their events. They need to see the many faces of the people this bill affects. The Greater Kansas Racing Alliance thanks you for continued support of the effort to reinvigorate horse and greyhound racing in Kansas.

Hope in the Valley August Horse of the Month

Sheba came to the rescue in extremely poor condition from a county seizure. She’s now fat and happy and would be a wonderful horse for an intermediate rider. Sheba would make a great go-down-the-road horse or a good trail horse, but she is unable to do speed or timed events.
