The field has been set for Harness Horse Youth Foundation's "invitational" exhibition to be held Saturday at the Meadowlands Racetrack. One representative from each of the three introductory level programs were selected to participate.
"Each of these young people demonstrated keen interest in harness racing as well as possessing great work ethics and sportsmanship. It is always a pleasure to reward outstanding efforts with the total experience of Hambletonian Day, not to mention the thrill of being on the track" explained executive director Ellen Taylor.
The aspiring drivers will be assisted by professionals Corey Callahan, Andrew McCarthy, and Scott Zeron and their horses will be CD's Miss M, I Want Another, and Royal Attire from the HHYF stable.
From the Goshen Historic Track event: AJ Wright, Age 14, Hometown: Montpelier, Ind.
From the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono event: Alivia Smith, Age 12, Hometown: Olyphant, Pa.
From the Gaitway Farm event: Genna Kerlin, Age 12, Hometown: Allentown, N.J.
Post time for the HHYF exhibition will be 11:25 a.m., just prior to the beginning of the day's star-packed card including the Hambletonian and Hambletonian Oaks.
