After the tournament, please join us in honoring philanthropist and owner Marylou Whitney, who has been named the 2019 NYTHA “EquiStar” for her tireless support of the backstretch workers and New York racing. The EquiStar Award was created by the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association to recognize an individual or organization that, through compassion, hard work and generosity, enrich the New York Thoroughbred industry. Mrs. Whitney will be honored during the cocktail reception that follows the golf tournament, starting at 4:30 p.m. The event is free to tournament players; tickets are $50 each for non-players. Click here to order on line, or call the NYTHA Office at (516) 488-2337. You can also celebrate Mrs. Whitney with an ad in the awards program. Click here for more information.
All proceeds from the NYTHA Golf Tournament are dedicated to funding the horsemen’s political action committee, used to promote the legislative agenda on issues big and small that impact the owners and trainers competing on the NYRA circuit. At the top of that agenda is protecting VLT revenue, which has spurred significant growth for the racing industry in New York, creating jobs and increasing revenue for the state while maintaining a purse structure that makes racing more economically viable for owners. NYTHA also ensures that horsemen’s voices are heard on topics including sports betting, Belmont Park redevelopment, protection of racing dates, and medication and racing regulations.
With every drive, you increase the volume of the horsemen’s voice in Albany. Let’s get loud!
All the best,
NYTHA President Joe Appelbaum
