A few words from the PA-Bred Executive Secretary

By Brian Sanfrantello

I’m proud to announce that $41,625 in breeder grants
ranging from $375 to $1,500 were sent out in early July to
help needy members with feed and veterinary bills. Prominent
breeders like Chuck Zacney and Glenn Bennett stepped up
to the plate with generous donations to the cause. Their donations, along with matching
funds from the PHBA, made the grant program possible. We’d like to again thank them for
their generosity!
PA Day at the Races will be held on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 7 at Parx Racing with
over a half-million in purses! The card will feature five PA-Bred Stakes and as usual the
balance will consist of PA Restricted Races. With the threat of the spread of Covid-19,
there will be no luncheon. The ability of
owners and their guests to attend and
even be in the paddock or winner’s circle
will depend on protocols in place at that
time. Please note that late nominations for
the stakes will close Aug. 24 and may be
made by contacting the Parx Racing office.
Good luck and Go Pa!!
