Ardian Zika for State Representative, the Florida Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association (FHBPA) represents the interests of over 6,000 #Thoroughbred #racehorse owners and trainers who do business in #Florida. Many have vast #horseracing operations throughout the globe.

In fact, a recently-retired Major League Baseball star and #SouthFlorida native just won his first race at #GulfstreamPark this month. As a Florida Thoroughbred owner, he is also an #FHBPA member.

One of the largest chapters in the National HBPA, the FHBPA works to foster and promote our members’ relationships with #racetracks, community and #government, while creating a better #economic climate in which our #horsemen and their employees can thrive. District 37's #PascoCounty, #LandOLakes and statewide is where many of our members live, work, travel and do business.

We look forward to working with you this Session!
