You're Invited: Friends of the Maryland Thoroughbred Industry Fundraiser - Maryland Horse Breeders Association

Dear Friend of the Maryland Thoroughbred Industry:

On Monday, May 5, from 7-9 p.m., an industry-wide fundraiser will be held at PimlicoRace Course for the Brown/Ulman campaign in the race for Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Maryland. In a display of unity that signals a new spirit among the thoroughbred community in Maryland, the Brown/Ulman Reception is being jointly sponsored by all three industry stakeholders – The Maryland Jockey Club, Maryland Horse Breeders Association and Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association.

For over a decade, our industry fought hard to legalize VLT gaming in Maryland to revitalize our industry and make it competitive with our neighboring states. The income stream we are now beginning to realize is allowing all segments of our industry to get back on their feet and is creating a path to a strong future. You only have to see what is happening in our neighboring states and elsewhere to know that it is critical to our future that we have a Governor and Lieutenant Governor who share our goals and are committed to a strong and vibrant racing industry in this State.

Anthony Brown and Ken Ulman understand the horse business and are fully committed to our industry and its future. Anthony Brown, who has served as Lieutenant Governor of Maryland since 2006, grew up near Aqueduct Race Track in Queens, N.Y., and proudly lists "hotwalker" as one of the formative jobs of his youth. Jobs are a theme in his campaign and the horse industry anchors thousands of jobs in Maryland.

Lt. Gov. Brown's running mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, grew up going to Pimlico with his father, current Maryland Racing Commissioner and longtime Thoroughbred owner Lou Ulman. He knows the industry well, from the farms in his county to the Winner's Circle at the track and has consistently advocated for our best interests.

Both Anthony and Ken have repeatedly committed to protect the racing industry's share of VLT revenues and actively work to strengthen our industry for future generations.

Please give us your commitment and show your support and appreciation for this event.

Very best regards,

MHBA and its sales history

The leadership of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association tackled a new venture in the association’s first decade. In November 1938, the MHBA held its first sale of yearlings, horses in training, mares and weanlings “where Eastern buyers can replenish their stables before going to winter races, where Eastern breeders can purchase desirable mares for their farms close to home, and where the local breeders can find a ready market for the products of their farms that they did not wish to send to Saratoga.”
