Trainer Mort Hardy, who has spearheaded the Barn 7 Recovery Fund project, said now is the time for horse people to help horse people in need.
"This is a family (on the backstretch)," Hardy says. "Every family may have their squabbles, but when something like this happens, we all come together. It's wonderful to see everyone band together at a very difficult time."Both the HBPA and Woodbine Entertainment have seeded the relief fund with $10,000 each.Racing fans can help by donating to the: BARN 7 RECOVERY FUND
