FAIR WINDS 2ND ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE DRAWS 350

MANALAPAN, NJ – June 29, 2015 – Wagon rides, farrier exhibitions, equine clinic tours and exhibits of all sorts highlighted the 2nd Annual Fair Winds Farm Open House on Sunday, June 28, 2015.




The Cream Ridge, NJ farm threw open its gates and hosted a grand party with more than 350 guests who took wagon rides behind draft horses Rosie and Claire; watched farrier Tom Mulryne demonstrate hoof care while members of the Standardbred Pleasure Horse Organization showcased their retired standardbreds talents as riding, competition and carriage horses; toured Dr. Patty Hogan’s equine veterinary clinic, and the equipment worn by standardbred racehorses was presented by driver-trainer Jacqueline Ingrassia and trainer Frank Ingrassia, who brought their currently racing trotter Cool Beans.

“It was a terrific day and a great way to put a spotlight on the standardbred industry with its many facets, from breeding to racing to after-track options,” said Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association President Tom Luchento. “We thank Mark Mullen, Farm Manager Matt Gartland and the staff at Fair Winds for making this second annual event such a success. Any time someone experiences our horses up-close, we know we will win them over.”

Pastures with broodmares and their foals were popular photo opportunities for the visitors.

Among the Standardbred Pleasure Horse Organization members participating were Helene Gregory who drove Jambalayabar Man, Rob Pennington presented Glissade and Stephanie Jacobs rode World Class Guy. Nicole Bursac showed off the roan Styled N Misty, while Terry Keynton had Osborne’s Shy Cam outfitted for trail riding.

The always popular trotter Independent Act, aka Indy, and his owner, Suzanne D’Ambrose, continue to be great ambassadors for the breed, posing for photos with youngsters, oldsters and legislators [including Assemblyman Ron Dancer]. Indy’s “Month of the Horse” activities included appearances at three libraries as well as the Fair Winds event.

Many of the local farming and equine groups, including 4-H and Future Farmers as well as the Rutgers Equine Science Center were represented.


Draft horses Rosie and Claire provided wagon rides for visitors.


“It was a beautiful day and we had enthusiastic participation from many groups and a lot of non-horse people here, visiting Dr. Hogan’s clinic, seeing all the demos,” said Fair Winds’ owner Mark Mullen. “People were very complimentary about the farm and all the horses and activities. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.”
