'Greatest Game' Plans Events for New Owners

The Greatest Game, Inc. , the horseracing industry program that seeks to expand Thoroughbred ownership by attracting new investors in the sport, will host a series of receptions in Maryland, Florida and Georgia beginning March 17, Gay Fisher, the organization's president announced.

"These are part social events and part new owner recruitment opportunities," said Fisher. "We anticipate doing several more of these receptions throughout the year in places like New York, California and Texas. In the past, we have found them to be a valuable tool for bringing together our consultants with potential owners."

The first reception of 2004 will be held March 17 at the Columbia Country Club in Chevy Chase, Md., and will be hosted by noted horseracing TV analyst Charlsie Cantey and husband Douglas Davidson.

It will be followed by an event on March 23 at the new International Polo Club in Palm Beach, Fla., site of the upcoming U.S. Open Polo Championships. Hosting will be John Goodman, part owner of Came Home, the 2002 Kentucky Derby starter who won that year's Santa Anita Derby and Pacific Classic.

Concluding the series will be an event on March 25 at the Ravinia Club in Atlanta, where Nick Nicholson, president of the Keeneland Association, will serve as co-host, along with club member Steve Sansone.

Based in Lexington, Ky., TGG was conceived in 2000 and launched in 2001 with backing from the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA), the Keeneland Association, the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) and The Blood-Horse.
