Harness Racing BC Executive Director Jackson Wittup has said that the response to fundraising efforts for the families of the recent fire in Langley have been “overwhelming.”

Fire ripped through the Langley, B.C. barn on June 1 and claimed the lives of 17 Standardbred racehorses. The blaze took a tremendous toll on trainer Bill Davis and owner Rick Mowles’ J J J Stables.

“I have not seen the totals from the Fraser Downs event on June 17, but there were close to 100 auction items and lots of choices for the well-attended event,” said Wittup.

“Once again, there are too many people to list for ‘thank-you's, but I would like to particularly single out Sandra Roberts, who spent many hours on this project as well as finding sponsors. Well done!”
