Freehold Raceway management, horsemen, and the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey are combining forces Monday, January 18, 2016 to support the horsemen involved in the fire at Classy Lane Training Centre.

The devastating fire claimed the lives of more than 40 Standardbred racehorses. The six trainers housed in that barn lost all of their stable equipment in the fire.

Freehold is encouraging drivers and trainers to donate their percentages from Monday’s race card to their fellow horsemen. Freehold Raceway has pledged to match the horsemen’s total. SBOANJ President Mark Ford and the board members have joined the effort and are willing to make a contribution equaling the amount the horsemen raise.

We would like to give a special thank you to the following race sponsors for their donations.

  • Eric Abbatiello

  • Bresnahan Racing Stable

  • Mike Casalino Jr.

  • Pat McNamara

  • P.F.R. Stable

  • Steve Smith

  • SPHO

  • Nick Surick

  • John Urbanski

  • Valley High

Anyone interested in donating, please donate through the official GoFundMe fundraising page or mail cheques payable to 'Classy Lane Barn Fire.'

Central Ontario Standardbred Association
P.O. Box 297
