After the exhibition at Yonkers Raceway, it appears there is much support to establish a racing under saddle circuit as a legitimate racing experience in the United States. Helene Gregory, wife of driver Jeff Gregory is working with the USTA to establish a list of individuals who want to participate in racing under saddle events.
If you are a driver/rider (female or male) who wish to participate in racing under saddle events; a trainer or owner who is willing to participate and offer horses to these events; or an individual/corporation who is willing be a sponsor, Helene wants to here from you. The intention is to get a good number of riders and competitive horses to start a circuit of racing under saddle events and if all goes to plan, possibly get these races on the pari-mutuel card. For those who wish to ride, there will be a separate test required for licensing as a jockey.
If you are interested in participating in racing under saddle, you may contact Helene Gregory and provide her with your name, email address and phone number so a mailing list can be established. You may contact Helene directly, or if you prefer, you may leave your information here, and I will forward your information to Helene directly.
