A special fund, designed to save the Massachusetts horse racing industry, has an unusual problem: It has too much money and not enough places to spend it.

WBUR, in collaboration with the investigative news organization The Eye, has been examining the Massachusetts Race Horse Development Fund. Here, WBUR's Bruce Gellerman has the first story in our two-part series, "Trying To Win But No Place To Show."
