Retired Standardbred trainer/driver and author Freddie Hudson is currently organizing and establishing the United States Harness Racing Alumni Association.

The new USHRAA's purpose and goal is to promote the sport of harness racing, provide funding for the aftercare of Standardbreds and to offer the harness racing industry representation in Washington, D.C.

The USHRAA will be open to everyone including past and present horsemen, racetracks, farms, backstretch personnel, track employees and fans who wish to help promote the sport of harness racing and are interested in the well being and aftercare of our horses when their racing careers are over.

The by-laws are currently being written and the formation of the regional chapters is being organized. A board of advisers is being set up and the Association's website is under construction and will be unveiled sometime during the spring of 2018.

If you have any Ideas and suggestions or would like more information, you can contact Hudson directly at 631.896.9838 or email
