Freehold, NJ—-Freehold Raceway and the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey (SBOANJ) announced today that they raised over $6,300 to support the horsemen that fell victim to the fire at Classy Lane Training Center. The devastating fire claimed the lives of more than 40 standardbred racehorses. The six trainers housed in that barn lost all of their stable equipment in the fire.
Freehold Raceway and the SBOANJ joined forces on January 18 to raise funds for this worthwhile cause. Many of the drivers and trainers donated their percentages from Monday’s race card and sponsored races for the benefit of their fellow horsemen. Freehold Raceway and the SBOANJ made a contribution equaling the amount the horsemen raised.
Anyone interested in donating should mail checks payable to “Classy Lane Barn Fire”
