The New England Amateur Harness Drivers Club

just seems to be getting better every year. The

amateur season in 2016 was amazing. 2017 was

even better. The NEAHDC participated in more

races (44 ) and for more purse money totaling

$ 188,600. In addition we had more drivers (35)

participating in our races than ever before. Not all

drivers raced on a regular basis but none the less

all 35 drove at least once.  In terms of donations,

we surpassed last years total by nearly $ 2000

dollars, something that was very rewarding. I’m

also pleased to report that nearly all the purse

money from NEAHDC races went to the owners,

and trainers who regularly race at Plainridge.

Finally, none of this would be possible without the

help and cooperation of the management team at

Plainridge. Steve O’toole and Paul Verrette worked

with us to make this all happen. We owe them a

sincere and heartfelt “THANK YOU”.
