John Deere Sponsors Mohawk, Featured on Showcase Day
John Deere's role in New York Showcase Day this Saturday will include sponsorship of one of the day's richest races, the Mohawk Handicap. The race is exclusively for New York-breds 3 years old and up and will cover nine furlongs on the turf. A total of nine races exclusively for New York-bred horses make up the showcase, which takes place at Belmont Park. The John Deere company will be one of many organizations with booths at the day-long celebration of New York and New York racing. The tractor company will present six John Deere kid-sized pedal tractors, toys, and coloring books to Belmont's new backstretch childcare facility, Anna's House. The company will also display 20 antique tractors at Belmont Park.
