The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association hosted Caretaker Appreciation Night this past Friday night. Three lucky caretakers were given a 'bonus' from a random drawing to decide the Mystery Races.

Two caretakers received $100 each. John Hayes, caretaker of Fox Valley Smarty, won the top prize of a $300 bonus and a keepsake blanket. The prizes were made possible by a generous donation from an anonymous MSOA member that wanted to give back to those that work tirelessly behind the scenes.

In addition, Meadows drivers gave $20 to every caretaker that they drove for throughout the evening.

The MSOA provided cake to everyone in the paddock as part of the celebration.
