MONTICELLO, NY--- Besides offering races to many racetracks which, especially in this day and age, are welcomed to help fill their harness racing programs, the granddaddy of all amateur organizations the CKG Billings Harness Driving Association, donated to a local charity while the Billing members were competing in Canada.

"We donated $1000 to a women's shelter near Mohawk while we were racing in Canada," noted Billings vice president Steve Oldford. "We presented the check in the winner's circle prior to the start of our race at Woodbine Mohawk Park on May 28th.

Ever since the Billings Series was instituted in the early 1980's the competing amateurs have donated many tens of thousands of dollars to charities as well as being a major supporter of the Harness Racing Museum.
