Yonkers, NY — The Standardbred Owners Association of New York has contributed $25,000 to the Standardbred Racing Investigative Fund to help meet the challenge of the $250,000 matching fund grant from Hanover Shoe Farms that was announced in April by Hanover Shoe Farms’ President and CEO Russell Williams and Executive Vice President Bridgette Jablonsky to promote integrity in harness racing.
The Standardbred Racing Investigative Fund announced its formal launch on Sept. 29. SRIF is a 501(c)(3) corporation formed to fund expert investigations into matters concerning the health and welfare of horses in the harness racing industry, such as prohibited medication practices and fraudulent trainer listings.
The SOA of NY encourages other horsemen’s associations, track operators and specifically those individuals most vocally concerned about integrity in harness racing to do whatever they can to assist the SRIF.
All contributions should be made out to the Standardbred Racing Investigative Fund and sent to: Standardbred Racing Investigative Fund, P.O. Box 339, Hanover, PA 17331.
