The Board of the Standardbred Transition Alliance (STA) is pleased to announce that Jennifer Daniels has been named its Administrator.

Daniels, a seasoned Standardbred aftercare professional, comes to the position with considerable experience operating a Standardbred transitional training program at her own Laurel Haven Farms, in Ohio. She previously worked in the regulatory department of the United States Trotting Association. A graduate of Ohio State University, Daniels holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture/Animal Science.

"We are delighted to have the benefit of Jennifer's significant expertise in both transitioning our horses to new careers and as a professional within our industry. She will be working closely with our board in accrediting the first group of programs serving our horses, with our inaugural grants going out early in 2020," said STA President David Reid.

Formed in the fall of 2018 and granted 501(c)(3) status in April 2019, the primary mission of the STA is to inspect, accredit and award grants to approved organizations that acquire, rehabilitate, train and rehome Standardbred horses, using industry-wide funding.

As Administrator, Daniels will be responsible for representing the STA in a leadership role, focusing on facilitating the accreditation process, establishing industry partnerships, project planning and exploring further program developments to enhance greater breed marketability and increased visibility.

"I am excited to join the STA and help carry out its important mission," said Daniels. "I look forward to working with the Board of Directors and the various stakeholders in Standardbred racing to showcase the transitioning of horses we care so deeply about."

Daniels will be attending the upcoming Harrisburg Yearling and Mixed Sale.
