KHA Launches Website
The Kentucky Harness Association(“KHA”) is pleased to announce the launch of its website (kyharness.com) dedicated to its members and growth of the harness industry in Kentucky. The KHA was established to promote, support and facilitate growth in the harness industry in Kentucky and to promote and encourage cooperative efforts among racetracks, owners, breeders, trainers and drivers, fans, and other industry participants for the overall benefit of the industry.
The KHA is seeking new members with a common desire to grow the KHA and support it in its efforts increase visibility on issues that impact the industry on local, state, and national levels, while continuing to promote the Kentucky harness racing and breeding industry. Membership is presently free for owners, breeders, trainers and drivers and associate members that are involved in the industry in Kentucky as service providers, fans or others that love harness racing.
Acting as a united voice to promote the industry, members will receive regular legislative updates, horse health and welfare notices, racetrack developments and news, including medication issues, and tax and economic news. More importantly, the KHA will develop and secure group benefits (insurance programs, purchasing discounts, etc.) for members.
“The future of harness racing in Kentucky is bright. I have never been more excited about the industry in Kentucky with the new $225M+ Oak Grove Racing and Gaming Complex, the growth and expansion of The Red Mile and the rejuvenated Kentucky Sire Stakes and Fair programs. With my 40+ years of experience in the business and through the friendships we have built, our goal with the KHA is to be the unifying force in harness racing in Kentucky, nationally and internationally to grow the sport and business we love,” says Bob Brady, President of the KHA. “We encourage everyone to join and become an active member as Kentucky regains its stature as the harness capital of the world,” continues Brady.
