Latham, NY --- Morrisville College Institute Manager Erin Shantal is proud to announce that Morrisville College has taken on a new initiative for Standardbred aftercare.

For all yearlings owned and sold by Morrisville College at the yearling sale on Sept. 17, the College will donate $100 from the purchase price of each of their horses to a reserve fund to support any New York-bred Standardbreds found to be in need.

Shantal states, "There is a need for breeders to be responsible for the animals they produce and provide for their well-being. The success of Morrisville’s Equine program is directly linked to all NY-bred Standardbred horses and the college has decided to provide support for those who need assistance."

Dave Reid from Preferred Equine also supports the new initiative and will encourage his consignors to participate in supporting the future needs of all NY-bred horses.

Dave Hanson from Lake View Equine has pledged his support as well as his major consignors, Guy Howard and Ross Bonafield.

The following consignors have also pledged support of the new initiative and all other consignors are encouraged to join them in supporting NY-bred aftercare: Allerage Farm, Black Knight Stable, Crawford Farms, Flyhawk Farm, Forty Hills Farm, Howard Stables, Silver Maple Farm and Stein Racing Stable.
