With sport in peril, horse racing’s heavy hitters finally promise to work together.

It’s a start, they stressed. For years one of the chief criticisms of those who run Thoroughbred racing is that the sport’s major players refused to work together.

Instead of one voice to speak for and address important issues within the industry, there was a scattering of often competing jurisdictions. Tuesday at the Keeneland Library, representatives of major American tracks promised to change that.
