The present state and future of the horse racing industry in Idaho was covered in a Twin Falls-based news website.

The future of the horse racing industry in Idaho was the subject of a story on MagicValley.com, a news website based in the city of Twin Falls.

The local coverage comes on the heels of the opening of the race meet at the Jerome County Fairgrounds. One of the principles interviewed for the story is trainer Monty Arrossa, an Idaho native who moved his business to southern California last year.

"I didn't think I could make a living anymore in Idaho," said Arrossa, who won last year's Champion of Champions (G1) at Los Alamitos with the Idaho-bred gelding Zoomin For Spuds. "It's sad for me to feel like I can't stay in my home state and make a living."
