Description

The Herald-Leader series reported that "backside workers at Kentucky racetracks are some of the least-protected in the state when it comes to workplace injuries, and they are some of the poorest in the billion-dollar horse business." The series tells the stories of many injured backside workers and looks at the loophole that allows many trainers to avoid paying workers' compensation.
