Horse trainer Travis Umphrey, who owns many horses and employs several people has decided to move his operation to Ontario which he says is much more friendly to harness racing than Alberta right now. Here is poses with “Trisha’s Beauty” in a stable at Northlands on November 21, 2008.  Photo by Ryan Jackson/Edmonton Journal

Darryl Cutting and his partner Melinda Smith (not shown) run a mid-sized stable at Northlands. Their operation is too small to afford to pack up and move to Ontario. If Harness racing in Alberta dies, so will their livelihood. Here Cutting is pictured in his stable at Northlands on November 14, 2008.    Photo by Ryan Jackson/Edmonton Journal
