Pontone, 53, plans to call on his "deep-rooted passion for harness racing in the great State of New Jersey" in his role on the SBOANJ Board of Directors.

"I absolutely love harness racing and am very devoted to it," he said. "My wish is that the sport can continue to grow and prosper here, and there is no doubt in my mind that it can."

In addition to his ownership interest in 2009 Horse of the Year Muscle Hill, the St. Johns University graduate was also was a partner in 1998 Pacer of the Year Red Bow Tie, 2013 Trotting Horse of the Year Market Share and 2003 Pacing Horse of the Year Art Major among many others.
