The Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association of British Columbia, working with Hastings Racecourse, will donate the equivalent of one full day's purse distribution during "Racing to the Rescue" on Oct. 1 in support of the ongoing relief efforts to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Representing local racehorse owners and trainers, the HBPA contribution will result in an estimated $50,000 going to the fund.
In addition, Hastings Racecourse will contribute up to $10,000, as well as proceeds of a 50/50 draw held on Oct. 1.
