“Everyone has so far been so kind,” said meet organizer Claire Fletcher. “It just shows when we all pull together anything can be done.

“We are expecting a great meeting,” Fletcher said. “And we hope to have 16 races run that Sunday.”

There will be a disco and bar Saturday night in a private room for entertainment and after the races on Sunday, a singer at the upstairs bar at the racetrack.

Donations have already been given for the charities including services to Western Jackpot, Matador, and Smack Talk. A new set of harness, a holiday trip to Spain, a spa weekend, designed jewelry, even the breaking/gentling of a racehorse.
