Tuesday Briefs

Long time West Virginia horsemen Kelly Staten, a regular on the Rosecroft circuit for many years has been in poor health of late and recently, doctors were forced to remove one of his legs.  There is a GoFundMe site dedicated to raising funds to help the family with getting the home ready for his return.  Even if you can't make a large donation, those small donations add up.  Please consider donating.

While fireworks will be bursting out all over America for the 4th of July holiday,  there will be some fireworks at Hanover Raceway as the next stop in the Canadian Racing Under Saddle series takes place.  Entries have not been taken yet but program pages for the RUS event and the entire Hanover card will be available at Hanover Raceway's website.

The first day of racing at Goshen Historic track, admittedly the weakest of the four cards has been drawn with eight New York County Fair races on the docket.  Unfortunately, there are many short fields on the card including a duo of two and three horse races.  While not the fullest of fields, it gives racing fans the opportunity to take a stroll of the backstretch and meet trainers and drivers.  The ironic thing is the cheapest purse is $2,850, a respectable purse at any B track.

Have a great Tuesday all.
