December 2017

It is rare to have a 14-year-old veteran campaigner stay sound long enough to race until their 15th birthday, but on Wednesday December 27, Monticello Raceway had 2 – 14-year-old warriors race in their final career start in the same race, Grecale AS and Schalom G.

In the winner’s circle after the 7th race on Tuesday, December 5 at Monticello Raceway, longtime Monticello Raceway horseman Norman Bradbury was honored for his extensive and prominent career and was honored in a retirement ceremony.

 Middletown, NY – Lifetime Achievement Award honoree Ray Schnittker said, “If I had ten dollars for every person in this room that I had a drink with…I would be a billionaire!”
 
Over 200 horse people enjoyed the Monticello-Goshen USHWA chapter’s 59th annual awards banquet at the Fountains at Wallkill Golf Club on Sunday, Dec. 3.  Those in attendance listened carefully as the Goshen Historic Track-based trainer/driver was thankful for all the friends and memories he has made throughout his many decades of success in the Harness Racing industry.
