I am so excited about this as I live here in Florida. We are the State that has the most tracks that race these poor dogs so this would be a significant win for the greyhounds if this passes. I've lived in two other States while the ban on racing happened, I hope I'll now be able to say 3 States.

thank you for this news. I really hope they do pass that ban. I don't see the fun in any type racing. it's all cruelty to animals. they never had any life, because they're kept, and trained everyday for racing. strict diets, always exercising, always be commanded. all for people to make money from them. what do the poor animals get? injuries, and death. all races need to be banned.
