And they’re, almost off. A summertime tradition
starts Thursday in Tulsa as live horse-racing kicks off at Fair Meadows.
The season runs through July.
News on 6 reporter Steve Berg says horse racing isn’t quite what it was.
Casinos have taken a piece of their action, but we still found some race
fans that are chomping at the bit.
Jim Kaemmerling has been a regular at Fair Meadows for the past 7 years.
He enjoys the simulcast action around the country. But he’s eager to
head to the track Thursday for real. "Oh yeah, I wouldn’t miss it."
But Oklahoma’s Horse Racing Industry has been a little dicey lately, due
to the rise of casinos.
