With the loss of two major racetracks over the years and continuous battles with the Atlantic City casinos and state legislature to get slots, New Jersey racing
is struggling to remain competitive with surrounding states, most notably New York, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.
If the Garden State is to succeed in achieving its objectives, it very well could be due to the efforts of New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association president and legal counsel Dennis Drazin, who has been a ubiquitous presence on the New Jersey political scene for the past several years.
Drazin, who is president of the Red Bank-based law firm Drazin and Warshaw, became a major voice in the state after being named to Gov. Jon S. Corzine’s Governor’s
Commission on the Horse Racing Industry.
