2015 SBOANJ GOLF OUTING YIELDS FUNDRAISING AND FUN

MANALAPAN, NJ – July 17, 2015 – New Jersey’s horsemen and TROTPac were the beneficiaries of a sunny day of golf for the competitors in the 20th Annual Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey’s Golf Outing & Fundraiser on Monday, July 13, 2015 at Gambler Ridge Golf Course in Cream Ridge, NJ.

A total of 121 golfers and banquet attendees feasted on a prime rib dinner, followed by cream puffs, cannolis and other desserts.

A moment of silence was observed to remember SBOANJ directors Edward Razzetti and Robert Baggitt Sr., who co-chaired the golf outing for many years. Both passed away in the last several months.

Numerous door prizes were distributed along with presentations for golfing prowess.


The Kunz Equine Team, best foursome


For the second straight year, the best foursome honors went to the Kunz Equine Team of Symon Spicer, Mike Seddon, Shannon “Murph” Murphy and Johnny Pregman. Murphy was also the 50-50 winner, donating back a portion of the $793 prize.
