Fire Sweeps Through Historic Barns at Track

By now you are probably familiar with the details of the devastating barn fire at Goshen Historic Track last Wednesday evening (8.23.17). The fire started around 6:00 pm and spread ferociously. We are very grateful that there was no loss of life and that more than 30 horses were rescued from their burning stalls. For this we must thank the quick thinking and responses of good Samaritans, trainers, Track staff and firefighters.

The following day, work crews were able to salvage some mementos from the historic stables and blacksmith shop. “It’s a little early to tell what our exact plans are,” said Steve Jones, the Historic Track board president. “But we’ve been here since 1838 … We’re going to pick ourselves up.” More than anything, it is important to keep our national historic landmark a vital part of harness racing history. It is still the area’s premier location for boarding, training and racing Standardbreds.

Now, more than ever, we need your support. We will be entering our 108th season of harness racing in 2018. Goshen Historic Track is the oldest active harness racing track in the world. Please help us keep the tradition of harness racing alive. A donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

Kaitlin Jones: Keeping Order and Smiles at Historic Track

We wrapped up our  2017 racing season Tuesday afternoon, July 4th, with a 10-race card. For those who attended the races any of the 4 days they had the privilege of seeing Kaitlin Jones lead the parade of horses each race with her trusty quarter horse Snoopy. It was the first time she had been a parade Marshall.

Kaitlin’s ability to bring the horses on the track in order and her outstanding horse handling skills in case of trouble made the races run smooth as silk. If that wasn’t enough, the biggest hit was Kaitlin and Snoopy interacting with all the visitors at the track. From kids in strollers to grandparents, everyone wanted to pet or take pictures with Snoopy and Kaitlin.

Racing and track officials were absolutely delighted with all Kaitlin did for the racing and the promotion of the track. Presiding judge Ozzie Cole felt “that girl looked like a seasoned pro out there. The fans loved her.” Goshen is great racing and behind the scenes there’s always people like Kaitlin Jones making it run smooth and making fans smile.
