Washington, PA --- The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association is pleased to announce that three breedings are being offered via auction to benefit the MSOA's Scholarship Fund.

This year, the MSOA welcomes back a familiar face and a new partner to assist with the scholarship funding effort.

For the second straight season, horse owner and MSOA member Ted Tomson of Brackenridge, Pa., has donated two breedings to trotting stallion Tom Ridge, on the roster at Nandi Farms in New Freedom, Pa., for a fee of $3,500.

Tom Ridge, a world champion son of Muscles Yankee, has a mark of 1:50.2 and banked more than $886,000 in his racing career.

The MSOA is pleased to welcome Hanover Shoe Farms to the team, as the nation’s leading farm has donated a breeding to Crazed, valued at $4,000.

Crazed, a million-dollar winning son of Credit Winner, is no stranger to Pennsylvania racing, as a past winner of the Colonial Trot at Harrah’s Philadelphia.

“We are pleased to have the Tomson family and Hanover Shoe Farms work with our program this year,” said MSOA President Rich Gillock. “We have had some great partners donate breedings in recent years, including Green Acquisition Corporation, owner of Trainforthefuture, and Fran Azur, owner of Hypnotic Blue Chip. The MSOA Scholarship Fund is lucky to have had the opportunity to work with these folks and their generosity has helped to benefit a lot of young men and women.”

The breedings will be listed on the website The 14-day auctions open on April 1 and end at 12 noon on April 15.

One Crazed breeding is available to the top bidder. Two Tom Ridge breedings are being offered. The underbidder will be contacted by the MSOA and offered the second breeding at the price of their bid as soon as the auction has closed.

Terms are 10 percent down (non-refundable), remainder due upon live foal.
