Equine research will reap the benefits of a gala dinner at racing’s Pan American Conference in New York next month.
The evening, presented by Longines at New York City’s exclusive Cipriani 42nd Street, is on Friday, June 5, and proceeds will benefit the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation.
The evening will also feature the presentation of the Longines and International Federation of Horseracing Authorities International Award of Merit and a medley of sights and sounds of Broadway-style reviews.
“This annual event is a great way to celebrate the Thoroughbred and the vital equine research that Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation funds,” said Dell Hancock, chairman of the foundation.
“The celebration has taken on a special aura this year since we will have our international guests from the Pan Am Conference with us at such a unique and prestigious venue and since we will be watching American Pharoah attempt to win the Triple Crown the following day.”
Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is the nation’s leading source of private equine research funding and helps all breeds of horses.
The Pan American Conference, hosted by the Latin America Racing Channel and The Jockey Club, will address numerous topics, including international simulcasting, globalization of the breed, anti-doping, technology, customer relations and aftercare during the two days of the business program on Thursday, June 4, and Friday, June 5. Conference participants will be attending the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 6.
Tickets for the charity celebration are $400 per person. Only a limited number of tickets are available, from http://bit.ly/graysontix.
