NYRA hosts the RACE FOR EDUCATION at Saratoga Race Course

NYRA was pleased to host the RACE FOR EDUCATION at Saratoga Race Course on July 30th. In addition to using the Community Outreach Booth to provide information about their organization and collect donations, they presented their Annual Scholarship check during the trophy presentation for the Fleet Indian Stakes.

The Fleet Indian Scholarship was established in honor of Fleet Indian, winner of the Personal Ensign and the 2006 Eclipse Award, and presented to a New York student wishing to pursue a career in the Thoroughbred industry. This scholarship is personally funded by Paul Saylor.

Mr. Saylor along with Elisabeth Jensen, Executive Director of the Race For Education, were proud to present a check for $10,000 to Samantha Wheeler, the 2010 Fleet Indian Stakes Scholarship winner.
