Slam Dunk Lobell and his owner, Judith Catchpole, have been members of the USTA’s Standardbred Equine Program for many years. Since 1996, the Standardbred Equine Program has worked with off-the-track Standardbreds and their owners to educate the general public about the many disciplines at which Standardbreds excel once they are retired from racing.
