I’ve been training and driving standardbred horses on racetracks for 25 years. It’s what I love best, and it’s pretty much all I know. If I have a choice, I’ll continue working with horses for as long as I can. There are plenty of others within the harness racing industry who feel the same way.

That’s why I’m asking you to vote yes on Question 2 on Nov. 8. If we approve this referendum, it will allow a brand new racino, with an all-weather racetrack, in Biddeford.

We need a racino in southern Maine to compete with other states. We can do that with the Biddeford Downs project. Besides the racetrack, the project will have a resort hotel, restaurants and other entertainment. It will create jobs and will be a big draw in this region.

Please help Maine’s horsemen and women compete. Vote yes on 2.
