NY CHAPLAINCY TO HONOR TRACY AND TODD PLETCHER
FOR CONTINUED DEDICATION TO BACKSTRETCH COMMUNITY
Dear Friends, 

On behalf of the New York Race Track Chaplaincy board and staff, I am delighted to announce that we will be honoring Tracy and Todd Pletcher at our 16th annual Brunch to be held on August 16, 2023 at Saratoga National Golf Club in Saratoga Springs, NY.

In the words of our Board President Ramón Dominguez, “The Pletchers have demonstrated a deep commitment to the backstretch community, and their support has come in many forms over the years. We are thrilled to honor them in this way for all they have done and all they continue to do.”

Said Todd: “This honor is very special to Tracy and to me. Our record reflects a team effort and the members of the backstretch are key members of our team. The New York chaplaincy does great work serving those who care for our horses and we are humbled to join their list of honorees.”

Our previous honorees have included Anne Campbell, Edgar Prado, Michael Dubb, Fay and David Donk, Marylou Whitney and John Hendrickson, Letty and Kiaran McLaughlin, Lisa and Kenny Troutt, Debbie and Terry Finley, the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, Irad Ortiz Jr. and, last year, Andy Serling.

The honoree each year is presented with a print by equine artist Tom Chapman at the brunch, which commencing last year and henceforth is known as the Marylou Whitney award, in honor of The Queen of Saratoga and of our hearts, Marylou.
