Millstone Twp, NJ --- The Standardbred Retirement Foundation has a trip to the celebrated Elitlopp in Stockholm, Sweden, one of harness racing's largest events, up for grabs through a fund raising raffle.
This fabulous trip begins with an airfare voucher valued to $1,600 and includes a five-day, four-night stay for two at a 4-star hotel in the heart of Stockholm; a welcoming dinner and get together Thursday night; on Friday, a tour of Menhammer Stud Breeding Farm, a tour of one of the most successful European training centers, a trip to The Elite Yearling Sale, a private tour of the Royal Castle and other historic sites; and entrance to the Solvalla Racetrack on Saturday and Sunday and an English speaking tour guide during your entire stay.
Raffle tickets are $25 each and funds raised will be used to provide hay and grain, medical and farrier care, rehabilitation, vaccinations, and other related needs for more than 180 Standardbreds currently in SRF's care. More than half of these horses are unadoptable due to age or injury and are under the full care and expense of SRF for the rest of their lives.
If you have not received your tickets by mail, they are also available for purchase by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 732.446.4422. The winning ticket will be drawn Friday (April 18) at 12 noon at Showplace Farms in Millstone Twp., N.J.; the winner does not need to be present.
Help with selling tickets is also much appreciated. Please use the contact information noted.
The SRF is commemorating its 25th anniversary as the only organization solely dedicated to the Standardbred breed that provides full care for its horses for life if age or injuries prevent adoption.
