Invited to attend are an owner of a match racing track in Nunn, a member of the Colorado Department of Revenue, two veterinarians – one in favor – one in opposition, and a local landowner within vicinity of a match race track.
I hope to open a discussion about match racing from both perspectives that will open a broader discussion within Colorado that will lend transparency that will encourage educated decision making as this sport is growing in popularity.
