All proceeds from the NYTHA Golf Tournament are dedicated to funding the horsemen’s political action committee, used to promote the legislative agenda on issues that impact the owners and trainers competing on the NYRA circuit. At the top of that agenda is protecting VLT revenue, which has spurred significant growth for the racing industry in New York, creating jobs and increasing revenue for the state while maintaining a purse structure that makes racing more economically viable for owners.
