ATTENTION NEAHDC MEMBERS!

THE 2018 SEASON IS HERE AND YOU MAY
NOTICE SEVERAL CHANGES ON THE CONDITION SHEET. 

FIRST, THE AMATEUR RACES WILL BE GEARED TO OWNER/ DRIVEN !

YOU MAY ALSO NOTICE AN INCREASE IN THE
PURSE. THESE CHANGES WERE MADE IN
ORDER TO PROMOTE AND INCOURAGE
MEMBERS AND PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS
(OWNER /DRIVERS)TO BUY HORSES AND GET INVOLVED. 
THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO DO JUST THAT.!

REMINDERS:

 
Any NEAHDC driver,who drives in an overnight event, must turn their drivers fee over to the amateur club.
This does not pertain to driving your own horse in an overnight. Your allowed to keep the drivers fee.
In order to insure your eligibilty in the club all others must turn over their drivers fee. No exceptions.
Also the club provides up to $200 for wheel insurance. This pertains to amateur club races only.!

The bonus program from last year(bonuses given to winning owners and trainers) will no longer continue.
In place of that program the club will create a scholarship or scholarships to one or more of a club family member.
Details will be posted once finalized!  
 
Last but not least, the amateur
club will continue to support many worthwhile charities as well as
occasionally providing refreshments in the paddock.
This will begin with a Memorial Day cookout.

Best of luck to all.

 


2017  WHAT A GREAT YEAR !

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”.
