Updated: Owners Step Up For Northfield Horsemen

Standardbred owners Jeffery Snyder, Tom King III and Thomas Cooke have generously donated breedings of their stallions to the Horsemen's Emergency Fund

at Northfield Park.

Snyder made a generous donation to the Horsemen’s Emergency Fund at Northfield Park on Friday by offering a breeding to Cams Card Shark and Village Jolt.

Cams Card Shark has enjoyed an illustrious career in the breeding shed with foals earning over $110 million. He currently stands at Hanover Shoe Farms of New Jersey with a $7,500 stud fee.

In just over two years of racing eligible foals, Village Jolt has sired winners of over $2 million and stands at Fashion Farms in New Hope, Pennsylvania for a $4,500 fee.

Services for both studs come with return privileges.

The Northfield Park Horsemen's Emergency Fund received two more generous donations of stallion services by owners Tom King III and Thomas Cooke on Saturday.

Nuclear Breeze, owned by Cooke, took his mark of 1:48.2 on a five-eights mile track at Rosecroft Raceway at age five. His first crop of two-year-olds will be hitting the track in 2011. He stands at Nandi Farm in New Freedom, Pennsylvania with a $3,000 stud fee.

Owned by King, Keystone Savage, a winner of the Peter Haughton Memorial who was named New Jersey's Two-Year-Old of the Year, saw his offspring average $10,000 at the Hoosier Fall Sale. He stands at Schwartz Boarding Farm in Berne, Indiana for a $1,750 fee.

Village Jolt and Cams Card Shark, Nuclear Breeze and Keystone Savage's services will be silently auctioned off between now and approximately 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 7, the evening of the Northfield Park Wall of Fame dinner and awards ceremonies.

An additional silent auction will be held for numerous gift baskets. Donations of items or pre-made baskets are still being sought. For more information, contact Amy Hollar at (614) 778-5905 or via e-mail at [email protected].
