NYRA, NYTHA and BST Contribute Funds for a Happy Thanksgiving for the Backstretch

The New York Racing Association, Inc. ("NYRA") and the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association ("NYTHA") each contributed funds to the Race Track Chaplaincy of New York for their Thanksgiving Boxes of LOVE program. Boxes filled with turkeys and all of the trimmings were distributed at Gate 6 at Belmont Park on November 23rd.

In addition, for the fourth year, the Albany-based firm of Bollam, Sheedy, Torani & Co. ("BST") underwrote the traditional Thankgiving meal for the grooms, hotwalkers and exercise riders who work at Aqueduct and Belmont Park. Meals were coordinated under the supervision of Dennis Zoitos in the cafeterias at both tracks on November 24th.

We all give thanks to them for all that they do for our industry!
