Fund raiser benefits victims of
fire on January 4 Classy
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (February 3, 2016) – The
Meadowlands and its horsemen raised a total of
$31,368.58 to benefit the victims of the Classy Lane Training Center fire in
Puslinch, Ontario that claimed the lives of 43 horses on January 4.
The money was raised in January when the track invited its horsemen to pledge a percentage of their on-track earnings to the cause. As usual, the industry exceeded expectations by also sending in donations by the thousands.
“This is every horseperson’s absolute worst nightmare,” said Jason M. Settlemoir, General Manager and CEO of
& Entertainment. “Many thanks to Jennifer
Bongiorno here at the Meadowlands
for taking the lead on this fundraiser and a huge ‘thank you’ must go out to
the dozens of horsepeople that opened their wallets to help their fellow
competitors in their time of need.”
Here is a complete list of horsepeople that donated:
Burke Barn of NJ
Stable & Weaver Bruscemi
Howard & Mark Ouriel
Jason M. Settlemoir
John D Campbell
Julie & Andy Miller
Robert Bresnahan Jr
Southern Tier Harness Horsemen's Association
