The generosity and support of the harness racing community has helped raise much needed funds for the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame and the Standardbred Retirement Foundation at the Hambletonian Casino Night held August 1st at the New Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, NJ.
 
Sponsored and strongly supported by The Hambletonian Society and The New Meadowlands Racetrack, the evening included not just great table games and a poker tournament, but wonderful food and terrific raffle prizes. A very hearty thanks to our major sponsors Pinkman Ownership (Takter, Fielding, Fielding, McClelland, Liverman), Control The Moment Stable, Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment, Arden Homestead Stables, Joe Bellino: owner of Pet Rock & Rock N Roll Heaven, Burke Racing Stable and Marc & Marcia Goldberg. We also thank Roberts Communications Network and Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment for providing the grand prize for the poker tournament, a 3-night/4-day trip for two to Las Vegas including airfare, first class hotel accommodation, show tickets and a generous food/beverage allowance.
 
We gratefully acknowledge the generosity of the following sponsors: Mullinax Ford, The Hambletonian Society, Charles Iannazzo, Tony Alagna, Scott Zeron, Dave & Misty Miller, Yannick Gingras, Corey Callahan, Julie & Andy Miller, Jonas & Christine Czernyson, Jim Marohn, Jr. and Ira and Ben Wallach.
 
Some of the sought after raffle items included the use of a luxury suite for 6 people for a New York Yankees game courtesy of the New York Yankees and Brian Cashman, tickets to the Syracuse – Notre Dame football game, an iPad mini, Apple TV, Fitbit, Samsung Galaxy tablet, signed Yankees memorabilia, Bradford Portrait package and much more.
 
This event was so successful and enjoyable that it will likely be repeated next year. Check with the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame and the Standardbred Retirement Foundation for more information next year.
