Like much of the economy- the horse racing business isn't exactly taking off in our area. But one local trainer's horse is winning and even being featured in a national magazine.
Horse Owner and Trainer Raymond Brandt said less and less people are racing horses.
"This area, the fairgrounds, it used to have all these stalls filled and some of the top horses in the state of Ohio," Brandt said.
Brandt loves training his horse, Here's Matty, and she's a winner... The fastest horse that's raced at the Muskingum County Fairgrounds.
"Every horse that comes out of this barn in Zanesville is competitive at the big tracks. Whether it is at the Meadows over in Pennsylvania or Scioto Downs in Columbus," Brandt said.
