Sponsor the Dr. Harry M. Zweig Memorial Trot races for 3 year-old colt and filly trotters.




 HISTORY

For years, Harry M. Zweig played a pivotal role in improving standardbred breeding in New York State and in reviving the Syracuse Fairgrounds as a racing center. When Dr. Zweig died unexpectedly in 1977, the New York State legislature established the Harry M. Zweig Memorial Fund for Equine Research to recognize his efforts. The law mandates that 2 percent of the money generated from betting in the Empire State horse racing industry be set aside for equine research at Cornell University's New York State College of Veterinary Medicine. The fund's mission: to conduct a balance of basic and practical research that has the potential to improve the health, welfare, and performance of racehorses.  For latest research conducted by Zweig Fund please CLICK HERE
