On Wednesday, October 12, New Jersey State Senator Jennifer Beck will visit two local horse farms as part of the effort to rally support for the gaming expansion ballot referendum.

Beck will be visiting Hunters Run Farm in Neptune and Boxwood Farms in Manalapan. She will be accompanied by Anthony Perretti, director of the Standardbred Breeders and Owners of New Jersey, as the group works to preserve and protect the equine industry throughout the state.

Beck and Perretti will tour the farms and speak with the owners about the state of the industry in New Jersey and how the Legislature can help farm owners maintain their way of life.

The visits and tours will take place at on Wednesday, October 12 at 11 a.m. at Hunters Run Farm, 4111 Belmar Blvd, Neptune NJ and at 12:30 p.m. at Boxwood Farms, 135 Iron Ore Road in Manalapan.
