ALL ARE WELCOME TO HELP INFLUENCE
THE IMPACT OF THE FUTURE OF OHIO RACING
With knowledge comes power. A most important tool in educating our lawmakers and the general public to the many financial benefits of horse breeding and racing is currently in the works and we need your participation to create it! The goods and services that are involved in breeding, raising and racing horses creates an amazing benefit to the state of Ohio. We need to create awareness of our viability and the vast advantages it provides for employment in Ohio.
Cummings Associates and Civic Economics have been retained by the Ohio Harness Horsemen’s Association and the Ohio Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association to measure the impact of horse racing to the Ohio Economy.
This survey is an essential component of that study. The survey is aimed at owners, breeders, and trainers of Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, and Standardbred race horses active in the state of Ohio in 2018.
The survey may also be completed online through March 20 at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OHRacingImpact
If you complete the survey on paper, please mail it before March 18 to: Matt Cunningham, Civic Economics, 1129 Cleveland St., Evanston IL 60202
If you complete the survey in PDF format, please save under a new filename and mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This survey asks for financial information of a sensitive nature, so we want to assure you that your confidentiality will be protected assiduously. Only personnel associated with Cummings and Civic Economics will have access to your responses, which will be maintained in a secure environment. Results will be presented in the aggregate, averaging responses in two ways: sets of questions will be totaled, then those totals will be averaged. The reporting of the study will provide no opportunity for anyone to identify your business information.
All questions refer to 2018. You may use the calendar year or, if you prefer, your fiscal year 2018. If you have your 2018 (calendar or fiscal) financial records at hand, this survey should take roughly 15-30 minutes to complete. The minutes it takes to complete the survey could benefit the industry in Ohio for decades.
