Silent Auction

The United States Harness Writers Association (USHWA) and the Harness Horse Youth Foundation (HHYF) are again teaming up to offer an exciting silent auction to benefit both harness racing organizations at the Dan Patch Awards Dinner Sunday, February 26 in Las Vegas.

For those who are on the go, one lucky bidder may attend the 2017 Preakness on May 20. That package includes two tickets to Turfside Terrace at Pimlico, including admission, seating, buffet, beer and wine, and parking. And while what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, one successful bidder can choose a two-night stay at any Caesar's property, along with a dinner for four.

Special works of art, including a 22x8x22 inch stone, fiberglass and resin horse head statue title "Champagne," a framed, double matted 25x33 inch "Stretch Drive," signed print by renowned artist James Crown and a 14x18 inch Greyhound framed print by R.H. Palenske are also up for bid.

For that special female, the auction features a Bow River two heart horse pendant and necklace featuring a .10 carat diamond and 14K gold necklace. Also offered is an equine-themed L.V. Harkness etched whisky decanter.

In addition to on-site bidding in Las Vegas, USHWA and HHYF are offering advance bidding on all of these items. Contact Steve Wolf at 954-654-3757, or Ellen Taylor at 317-908-0029 for bidding requirements and information.

Now in its fifth decade of service to harness racing, the Harness Horse Youth Foundation is a charitable 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing young people and their families educational opportunities with harness horses, in order to foster the next generation of participants and fans. The Foundation has been making a difference in young people's lives since 1976, and its programs include interactive learning experiences with these versatile animals, scholarship programs, and creation and distribution of educational materials. For more information on opportunities through HHYF, or to support its mission, go to www.hhyf.org.

The United States Harness Writers Association is a group of more than 220 members committed to the chronicling of harness racing through the print and electronic media. It was founded in 1947 by New York City area sportswriters who were covering harness racing at Roosevelt Raceway. It remains the only media organization in harness racing with a membership of newspaper, magazine, radio and TV, ad agency, publicists and others involved in racing communications. With most of USHWA's members allied to one of 12 regional chapters, the association strives to bring about a closer relationship among the media, racetracks and horsemen to promote a centuries-old American-bred sport.
