NYRA was proud to sponsor the Racetrack Chaplaincy Thanksgiving Food Drive at Belmont Park

NYRA was proud to serve as a sponsor for the Racetrack Chaplaincy's Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. My family and I were proud to assist other owners, trainers and jockeys and their families with the turkey and trimmings distribution to the families of the backstretch on November 21st at Belmont Park. The Racetrack Chaplaincy worked with Island Harvest and received private donations from individuals and organizations for this annual appeal which assists our backstretch families in preparing a hearty meal for their families. As the families arrived at Belmont Park, they enjoyed music provided by a festival chorus and they were greeted by many volunteers as they received their holiday turkey and trimmings.
