Serving Florida's Thoroughbred Horse Racing Owners, Trainers and Horsemen

Follow Us on Facebook

State Representative Chuck Clemons, the Florida Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association (FHBPA) represents the interests of over 6,000 #Thoroughbred #racehorse owners and trainers who do business in #Florida. Many have vast #horseracing operations throughout the globe.

In fact, a recently-retired Major League Baseball star and #SouthFlorida native just won his first race at #GulfstreamPark this past weekend. As a Florida Thoroughbred owner, he is also an #FHBPA member.

One of the largest chapters in the National HBPA, the FHBPA works to foster and promote our members’ relationships with #racetracks, community and #government, while creating a better #economic climate in which our #horsemen and their employees can thrive. District 21's #DixieCounty, #GilchristCounty #AlachuaCounty and statewide is where many of our members live, work, travel and do business.

We look forward to working with you this Session!

Note to Horsemen: Representative Clemons Chairs the Agriculture & Natural Resources Subcommittee, and is Vice Chair of the powerful Insurance and Banking Subcommittee, among other committee memberships.

Iowa's Legislature is about to debate #sportsbetting and our friends at the Iowa Horsemens Benevolent and Protective Association, Inc. are stepping forward to put their experience to work for Iowans.

Last week, the Iowa HBPA announced their intent to become the single license holder in #Iowa for #sportswagering.

The Iowa HBPA has been successfully conducting #AdvancedDepositWagering (#ADW) in Iowa since 2012. Many experts believe ADW will comprise over 50% of total sports wagers in Iowa, so proven experience is valuable, Iowa HBPA explained in the National HBPA blog post below . . .

To all of us who have the privilege of mounting and riding a horse each day, let's not forget how special that is, and the amazing courage and strength of our #jockeys and exercise riders, especially those who are sidelined @PDJFund.

A real tearjerker here . . . https://t.co/ig6NdkcBnS
