 Kickstarter campaign:

The OTB Documentary film is well over 80% complete, but there is so much work left to be done.
Shooting the final interviews, obtaining archival footage, and polishing the editing still must happen before "Finish Line: The Rise and Demise of Off-Track Betting" can hit the screen. 

The film still needs your help!

Please take advantage of the amazing rewards that are offered by contributing to this Kickstarter campaign.

We only have 29 days to exceed our goal or we don’t get nothin'.

You can also help by going to our Facebook page - OTB Documentary Film - and "LIKE" us.

Many of you have been a part of this historic project since the beginning, and I am grateful for all of your support. I will continue to update you on the film's progress.

Let's continue on this journey together and bring "Finish Line: The Rise and Demise of Off-Track Betting" into the Winner's Circle.

Thank you.
Joseph Fusco
