|THP Invites Horsemen to Free Lunch & Fire Safety Seminar
at Sam Houston Race Park on January 13
In light of the dry conditions
that have led to many wilfires across Texas in recent weeks, Governor
Rick Perry has tasked all state agencies to get more proactive about their
fire education and prevention efforts. Heeding the Governor's call to
action, the Texas Horsemen's Parntnership and the Texas Racing Commission,
in conjunction with Sam Houston Race Park, are hosting a free lunch and
fire safety seminar for horsemen at Sam Houston Race Park on Friday, January
The free lunch and fire safety seminar will be held from 12:00 p.m. -
1:00 p.m. in the Homestretch Cafe at Sam Houston Race Park. In addition
to a free lunch, all attendees will receive an embroidered THP sweatshirt.
The dry weather conditions endured by most of Texas in recent months
makes fires a very real and dangerous threat to horsemen, their property,
their horses, and the racing and training facilities in the state. Please
take this threat seriously and attend Friday's lunch and seminar if you
are in the Houston area.
