More Freehold NJ-Owned Or Sired Races

The Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey and Freehold Raceway reached an agreement today (November 13) to offer 40 per cent of all races at Freehold with a preference for New Jersey-owned or New Jersey-sired horses.

The SBOANJ’s Tom Luchento and Leo McNamara negotiated the increase with Freehold General Manager Howard Bruno and Freehold Director of Racing Karen Fagliarone.

“The preference will be given to New Jersey-owned or New Jersey-sired horses in those races, regardless of when the horses last raced,” SBOANJ President Luchento explained. “Of course, if the class does not fill, it will be opened to other horses. This should be reflected in the next condition sheet.”
