The Fund and our stakeholders across New York can boast that not only did our foal count increase by 4.4% over the 2013 count, the 2014 figure of 1,603 foals represents a 30% gain over the 2011 total.
Thank you for helping the Fund achieve our mission of “promoting by monetary incentives the responsible breeding of quality Thoroughbred racehorses in keeping with the founding legislation to preserve New York’s irreplaceable farmland.]
I wish you all a successful foaling and breeding season.
