Harness Horse Racers Back Gambling Bill

Harness horse racers say the gambling bill that passed the Senate yesterday could put them back on the playing field when it comes to racing in the state.  Tony Somone, with the Illinois Harness Horseman's Association, says the bill looks out for the racing industry by pumping money into its purses.  They'll get an average of about 15-percent of the cash that racetracks make on slots.  Somone says that could be the thing that draws people to Illinois races and breathes life into the industry as a whole.
