The 16th annual SBOANJ Golf Outing raised funds to benefit horsemen and produced a fun day for 115 golfers earlier this week on Monday, July 11 at Gambler Ridge Golf Course in Cream Ridge, New Jersey.

The golfers lucked into a mid-90s day with enough of a breeze to let them tour the course in fine form. In total, 130 people took part in the festivities, which included a prime rib dinner.

For the second straight year, trainer Jeff Webster won the longest drive contest for men. Beth Hilliard took honours for the longest drive by a woman.

The best foursome at 16 under par was the team of horsemen Kelvin Harrison, Shaun Vallee, Darren Cassar and Mark Lewis.

The “most honest” quartet members with the highest score were Oyvind Hegdall, Hendrik Lundell, Rick Pusey and Frode Flaven, who represented Joie De Vie Farm, a repeat winner in this category.

Individual honours went to horseman Nick Salenetri for closest to the pin and to Ralph Lombardi for putting.

Trainer Joe Anderson of Middletown, New York, won the drawing for the Premier Trainer Jog Cart, courtesy of Allen Eggert of Pennsbury Enterprises.

The Hole in One prize, a Mercedes C300 from Prestige Motors in Paramus, went unclaimed. The 50-50 winner was Douglas Collins whose share was $562.

Sponsorships, key to the fundraising effort, which benefits New Jersey’s standardbred horsemen in need, were provided by the SBOANJ’s benefits consultants, Katz/Pierz Inc. of Marlton, New Jersey, at the platinum level as well as 13 at the silver level: the Meadowlands Racetrack; the La Ferla Group-UBS Financial Services Inc.; Valley High Stables; Newport Graphics Inc.; the Clarksburg Inn; Drucker, Math & Whitman PC, CPAs; New Jersey Community Bank; Freehold Raceway; Joie De Vie Farm; Berman, Gara & Rutsky Group at Morgan Stanley/Smith Barney; Eposimato Stable; Peter Grandich and the Mark Ford Training Stable.

Additionally, Yonie’s Harness Shop and Dino Miliucci were prize sponsors and both John Campbell and Nick Salenetri were patron sponsors.
