Industry assists HHYF truck campaignMarch 7, 2007,
from the Harness Horse Youth Foundation
Westfield, IN — All facets of the harness industry have answered an appeal by the Harness Horse Youth Foundation (HHYF) to help fund the purchase of a much needed pick-up truck. The truck is used to transport horses, equipment and teaching materials for the Harness Racing Youth League summer camp program.
“I don’t know which makes me prouder – the diligent efforts of our hardworking trustees or the unbelievable support given by the entire industry,” said Callie Davies-Gooch, President of HHYF. “This truck represents many things, not the least of which is that the industry recognizes the importance of our work. This is the first significant asset to be owned by HHYF and will take the entire program to a new level. It is so gratifying.”
Those people and organizations who have contributed include: Brittany Farms Stallion Management, Steiner Stock Farm, Brittany Farms, Haygard Equine Medical Institute, Hanover Shoe Farms, Rodney Mitchell, Kentuckiana Farms, Blair Burgess Stable, Erv Miller Stable, Odds On Racing, Blue Chip Farms, Jeff Gural, Lindy Farms, Preferred Equine Marketing, Walker Standardbreds, Cottonwood Farm, Embroidery Unlimited, Freedom Hill Farm, Southern Oaks Training Center, Sterlingbrook Farm, Woodland Run Equine Veterinary Facility, Big Dee, Bluestone Farm, Holly Lane Farm, Josh Green Stable, Jerry’s Paving & Excavating, R. Wayne Pryor, and Midland Acres. Tim Pinske provided invaluable expertise in selecting the most suitable model and Jim Taylor of Troy Ford generously provided assistance in placing the final order.
Anticipated delivery for the new truck is early May. HHYF is still accepting donations for both the truck and for sponsorship of the Trottingbreds used in the program.
