New Jersey’s standardbred horsemen are donating their share of the revenue on Saturday, December 15, 2012 at Freehold Raceway to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties will receive the proceeds from Freehold’s “Racing toward Recovery Day.”

“We will be donating our share of the live handle that day to the FoodBank,” said Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association President Tom Luchento. “On a Saturday, that could represent several thousand dollars.

“Our office at 64 Business Route 33 in Manalapan also is serving as a drop off point for donations,” Luchento added. “We will accept non-perishable food items and cash for the FoodBank through Friday, December 14.”

Freehold Raceway has announced that it will name its feature race the Hurricane Sandy Pace on December 15. Additionally, the proceeds for any race sponsorships that day will be donated to the FoodBank.

Freehold will offer a free live program to all patrons making a non-perishable food donation.

The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, founded in 1984, serves more than 260 pantries, soup kitchens and other feeding programs with over seven million pounds of food distributed annually.
