NYRA Welcomes Hannah's Hope Fund to Saratoga Race Course

NYRA is proud to welcome Hannah's Hope Fund to the Community Outreach Booth at Saratoga Race Course. This fund was established by Lori and Matt Sames to fund research for Giant Axonal Neuropathy, a neurodegenerative disease for which there is no cure. Their six year old daugher, Hannah, was diagnosed with this disease and she is in a race against time.
NYRA Senior Vice President, Dave Smukler, presented a check for $500 to the family as they presented the trophy for the second race. To learn more about the fund, please contact Matt and Lori Sames at 518-275-5359 or go to
