« Return to News
The second leg of the Hall of Fame and Museum Amateur Racing Series will be held in Goshen, NY, on Monday, July 3, with a purse of $5,000. This race is in addition to the scheduled Billings Series race on that same day. If more horses are needed for the Museum race, drivers in the Billings race can be eligible for the Museum series by paying a $100 entry fee.
The first leg took place on January 21 at The Isle of Capri at Pompano Park. A resounding success, the support from the amateur driving community at Pompano raised over $3,000 for the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame in Goshen. Three races were contested with the winning drivers Museum Vice President Steve Oldford behind JLS TOO HOT TAJ, Dein Spriggs with A CROWN FOR LINDY and Fred Cohen behind THEKEPTMAN. Museum trustee Ebby Gerry, Jr. presented the trophies. A special thanks is in order for John Berry in promoting the series, Rosie Huff of the FSBOA for her help and the Florida Amateur Driving Club for their contribution of driving commissions to the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame.
The THIRD leg of the series is planned for the Meadowlands on August 4 during Hambletonian week, then on to the Delaware County Fair on September 21 for the Final on Little Brown Jug day. (Hall of Fame and Museum Amateur Racing Series)
