JANUARY 2020 NEWSLETTER
2020 is here! It’s hard to believe that another year is starting. Let’s hope it’s a great year for everyone!
2019 RACE MEET
What a great race meet this year!! Thanks to everyone who helped plan and run the meet. Thanks also to all the horsemen & women who participated. The amount of horses entered and raced exceeded what we hoped for. Thanks also to John Campbell, Foiled Again and Heather Vitale for visiting on our opening weekend. We hope all of you enjoyed being at Shenandoah Downs and had as much fun as we did. Can’t wait for this year’s meet!
One of the great things about a new year, is the birth of foals. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text (443-463-0917) your baby pictures so I can post them on our Facebook page slideshow for everyone to see.
