A New Stride in Racing!
“Promoting Racing Under Saddle and the versatility of the Standardbred breed.”
RUS New York highly relies on sponsorship funds to be a success. The organization is reaching out for support before the race season begins so that businesses and individuals get the most out of their buck.
Where else can one get so much advertisement and promotion for so little money? The answer is nowhere.
For as little as $200, sponsors will be put in all forms of promotion that we do for the season. This includes being featured in all fair race programs (generally parimutuals will include a page of our sponsors as well) and much more. The earlier one gets on board, the more exposure one will receive.
Just for donating you will be provided advertisement on our website.
For just $200 or more you will get a mention in all promotions such as race programs. (200 copies are printed for each fair)
For $500 or more you will be provided everything above as well as a feature spot on our homepage and inclusion on a bucket to be used as a prize throughout the season.
We will link your website or Facebook page to any ad on our website if provided
There will be limited opportunity to become a sponsor for a winner’s circle presentation. This offering will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. Sponsors will have their info printed on a lead line to be handed out after each race. A group photo is taken with the lead line being presented and an announcement is made on the sponsor’s behalf. Please visit
www.rus-newyork.com for more information.
It is not always feasible to donate money and RUS NY more than happily accepts product donations that can be used for prizes or fundraising purposes.
The organization is in the midst of putting together a raffle where tickets will be sold throughout the season to maximize profit. There will be multiple names drawn, so the goal is to have at least three donations. A couple of big ticket items would really help this fundraiser become a success. A May 31 deadline has been set so tickets can be made in time for the race season. Keep in mind the drawing will be done in the fall, probably at our fair final or shortly after, so gift certificates ect. need to be good after that time.

* Women and men from all different equestrian disciplines have the opportunity to participate.
* Helps attract some fresh fans to the sport of Harness Racing.
* It could help broaden awareness of the Standardbred across other disciplines. We believe this will also help give Standardbreds a step in the right direction towards a second career. By being broke to saddle, it may be easier to place them in pleasure horse homes when they are finished their careers.
* Provides horses that may not make enough or fit classes at the tracks with another use for owners. We also allow retired horses to race at fairs.
RUS is just one more way to promote and enhance New York’s already-stellar Standardbred breeding and racing programs.
