LOVE COUNTY, OK – There has now been another illegal horse racing bust in Thackerville. This is the second time in four months the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission has come down on an illegal horse racing track in Love County.

Authorities served a search warrant at the Rancho El Nevado Race Track in Thackerville on Friday morning. They say this is not connected to the raid that happened back in July.

Authorities say they confiscated a substantial amount of property from the race track but they would not say what exactly was taken. No arrest were made.

However they do say the evidence is substantial enough for them to determine illegal horse racing had been taking place on the property.

Officials would not comment on how they found out about the illegal race track, but they did say it's part of a state-wide crack down on illegal horse racing.

    where did you guys go to school. You guys need to write better. I thought illegals were dumb, but the way you guys write makes us very smart. Some of us write and I am sure speak better than most of you. Here is a thought go back to school and improve yor speech and grammar instead of judging others. Plus another thing, this blog was about horse racing and bush tracks remember? or let me guess! you guys also need help thinking. Illegals don't we're actually pretty smart.

    Illegals also NEVER pay for the medical...........I have insurance and I pay my co-pays. So, I don't think that I should have to pay the additional bills. Especially since WNJ gives treatment to illegals without asking for ins. or identification, etc. and will still treat them. Me, I got the third degree!!!!

    They also(illegals and non-English speaking Hispanics) get a free copy of the Herald Democrat while those of us that read English have to pay for it.

    Illegals dilute the job market. They committ crimes. They cost us billions a year in unpaid medical bills. They are criminals. 100% of them. If they want to come here, then they need to learn the language and do it legally. And that's the bottom line!!

    Terry: Calling an illegal alien an undocumented immigrant is like calling a drug dealer an unlicensed pharmacist. If they are here illegally they are criminals.....period.

    Hey terri - did someone yell "BORDER PATROL"? I thought this was about illegal horse racing. All though I suspect most of the participants spoke spanish I think you jumped on a dead horse (pardon the pun.)

    Because THEY have to abide by the same laws that WE, as non-hispanics must live by which is why this SHOULD have been done!
