Treasure Valley Racing is committed to a 2015 summer meet but if we want racing to continue in the State of Idaho, we need to get behind them in their efforts to save Historical Racing.  The bill to repeal Historical Racing, introduced by Roden on behalf of the Couer d' Alene tribe, passed the Senate and has move to the House. We have been asked tro contact our home Representative and urge them to vote against this repeal.  Key points are:  economic effect, money to education and youth programs, and the jobs/income lost if racing disappears in Idaho.
