The Texas Racing Commission is fully funded.

This morning, the Texas Legislative Budget Board authorized the Texas Racing Commission to expend its Rider 7 appropriations. 

This means that the agency is now fully funded through August 31, 2017. 

Sam Houston Race Park is scheduled to open its Quarter Horse meet on March 25.

Last year, Texas hosted 77 race days, with 2,205 starters making 6,151 starts during that time. They raced for more than $9.9 million in purses while creating more than $25.5 million in pari-mutual handle.
