Coalition hopes to bring horse racing to Georgia

Posted: Updated:

A grassroots effort hopes to bring horse racing to the Georgia legislature in 2014.

The Georgia Horse Racing Coalition and the Jockey Club have partnered to promote what they say are the benefits of horse racing.

The group says initial surveys show Georgians would welcome horse racing. They say the industry would increase jobs, tax revenues and tourism opportunities.

The group missed their chance to go before the legislature this year, but say they are confident that 2014 will be their year.
