JAMAICA, QUEENS — The New York Racing Association (NYRA) announced last week the creation of the NYRA Foundation, a philanthropic endeavor that will raise funds and awareness for nonprofits, service providers, thoroughbred aftercare groups, and other charitable organizations connected to horse racing.
