Subsidies for Maine horsemen shrink this summer

In this Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013 photo, harness race horses cross the finish line at the Windsor Fair in Windsor, Maine. The state's casinos were supposed to help harness-racing tracks by funneling some of the proceeds to them, allowing them higher payoffs to keep horsemen from leaving the state. Instead, race tracks are struggling more than ever because wagering on horse races has fallen off as patrons migrate to casinos. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty)
