“We are extremely pleased to have the Agriculture and Horse Breeding Development Fund join us as sponsors for the driving school,” said school coordinator Kent “Chip” Hastings. “I can’t think of a better way to help promote and foster interest in the New York program.”

Students that sign up will be immersed in a public racing stable environment, doing barn work each morning of the school, and then will listen to guest speakers in afternoon classroom sessions.
