What is NTRA's "HorsePAC?"

Horse PAC is a membership-based Political Action Committee activated in 2002 by the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA). The PAC makes targeted contributions to federal political parties and candidates. The PAC is part of the NTRA's proactive legislative strategy in Washington, D.C., which also includes federal lobbying and education programs such as the 55-member Congressional Horse Caucus for Members of the House of Representatives.
Horse PAC supports federal political candidates who:

Serve on Congressional committees that oversee matters pertaining to livestock and agricultural issues, Internet gaming and taxation
Are established Congressional leaders and/or control Congressional leadership PACs
Endorse tax legislation benefiting horse owners, breeders, players and businesses
Have racetracks, breeding farms, training centers and other equine venues in their districts
Are members of the Congressional Horse Caucus
Are emerging leaders meriting “early support”
