Thanks to all members who participated in the election process. It is through your voice and support that the IHHA can continue to address and work on the issues of concern to our industry.
Besides terrific racing at this year’s State Fair in Springfield, horsemen also enjoyed the company of Governor Pritzker, who spent about 30-40 minutes in the paddock enjoying the festivities. Also, on hand was Rick Heidner, who is the developer of the proposed Tinley Park Racino, as he spent the day working the horsemen’s grill and getting to know us a little better. Thanks to all who helped make this a successful event.
2019 Springfield State Fair replays are available. DuQuoin will be as well. Just click on the box on the right hand side of this page.
The detention time to be in the paddock for the Springfield and DuQuoin State Fairs will be 2 hours before scheduled post.
