PTHA Charities COVID Relief Fund

The Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (PTHA) endeavors to help any Backstretch employee facing difficulties due to the onset of COVID-19. Thanks to a generous donation from Glenn Bennett and Chuck Zacney of Cash is King LLC and LC Racing, LLC, the PTHA Charities Relief Fund was created to combat the impacts of the pandemic for our members. 

Any PTHA stable employee who has been affected or is unable to work due to COVID can request aid through the PTHA Office. Relief aid will generally be in the form of gift cards that can be used in grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. 

To request aid from the PTHA Charities COVID relief fund, please contact Connie Youmans in the PTHA Office to inquire about eligibility verification.
