HARNESS RACING MUSEUM & HALL OF FAME AMATEUR RACING SERIES TAKES OFF!
The first leg of the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame Amateur Racing Series took place on Saturday, January 21 at The Isle of Capri at Pompano Park in Pompano Beach, Florida. A resounding success, the support from the amateur driving community at Pompano raised over $3,000 for the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame in Goshen NY. Three races were contested with the winning drivers Museum Vice President Steve Oldford behind JLS TOO HOT TAJ, Dein Spriggs with A CROWN FOR LINDY and Fred Cohen behind THEKEPTMAN. Museum trustee Ebby Gerry, Jr. presented the trophies. A special thanks is in order for John Berry in promoting the series, Rosie Huff of the FSBOA for her help and the Florida Amateur Driving Club for their contribution of driving commissions to the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame.
The next leg of the series is planned at Goshen Historic Track, followed by the Meadowlands during Hambletonian week, then on to the Delaware County Fair in September for the final on Little Brown Jug day.
