Today (Wednesday, May 4) was the twelfth consecutive year that the Kentucky Derby raffle drawing was held at the Plainridge Racecourse with a nice crowd on hand to wager their bets on today`s races and also hpoeing that one of their tickets might be one of the lucky numbers drawn.

The management of the Plainridge Racecourse has sponsored this charity event, since the track opened in 1999.

The C.O.O. Gary Piontkowski and Stephen O`Toole Gen. Mgr. have been the backbone of this charity event and again it was a very successful event with over twenty thousand tickets sold.

The winners of the event were as follows:

Fifth Place: ( $100.00 ) winning bet: Dave Gagne Plainville MA # 15249

Fourth Place: ( $200.00 ) winning bet: Sonny Hulbert, Branchville, NJ # 06997

Third Place: ( $500.00 ) winning bet: Vince Wilfork, Plainville, MA # 19321

Second Place: ( $1500.00 ) winning bet: Robert & Bonnie Roth Gardner, NY # 00672

Grand Prize Winner: ( $4000.00 ) winning bet: Steven Lewis Jamaica, NY # 06157

New York was the luckiest state of all, with the top two prize winners from the Empire State and they were purchased thru the Harness Racing Museum.

The winners have already been informed of their good fortune and the third place winner, is the one in the same New England Patriot player Vince Wilfork, whose charity the "Vince Wilfork Diabetes Foundation" will certainly take a defensive stand to win as much money for their charity as possible.

Other charities and non-profit organizations involved with the event are :

New England Amateur Harness Drivers Association; American Credit Counseling; Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame of Goshen,NY; Harness Horse Youth Foundation; New England Harness Writers Association; Plainville Athletic Club; Plainville Lions Club.
