NYRA And NYTHA Salute Backstretch Volunteer Appreciation Day

The New York Racing Association and the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association are proud to honor the 2010 Backstretch Volunteers! Over 125 volunteers dedicate hours of their time to ensure that the health, social and spiritual needs of the backstretch workers are met during the Saratoga meet. NYRA and NYTHA recognized the volunteers from the Backstretch Employee Services Team ("B.E.S.T."), The Racetrack Chaplaincy, the Saratoga Equal Opportunity Council, and thanked them for their service.
