Gallucci: January 4, 2016, 11 p.m.

January 7, 2016:


When I saw the smoke pouring out of very crack from the West end of Barn 1 at Classy Lane, I knew something horrific was occurring right before my very eyes. As I rushed to open the doors, thick black smoke filled the barn. I can’t even begin to describe the cries from the horses; having nothing you can do to save them, feeling so helpless, knowing their lives were over.

Reid: There is No Future Without Transparency

August 7, 2015:


From a Concerned Bettor, Horse Owner and Racing Enthusiast

The day started off so promising. I might live in Richmond, VA but my attention was glued to one of my favorite days in all of horse racing - Industry Day at Grand River Raceway. It made me feel ever more homesick than usual to think that I would miss the 25th anniversary of a day of racing I cherish seeing live.

To all our fellow Horsemen, Horsewomen, Friends and Business Associates;

On June 1, 2014, we experienced the worst type of tragedy anyone can experience in a lifetime. We lost seventeen horses by smoke and fire. There are not words to describe the pain and heartache we feel.
