Each year, at the Brunch, the honoree is presented with a print by equine artist Tom Chapman. In August 2023, approximately 350 supporters of the NY Race Track Chaplaincy were in attendance.
The NY Race Track Chaplaincy serves the NY backstretch and farming communities of Belmont Park, Aqueduct Racetrack, and Saratoga Race Course providing enrichment programs for children, teens and women, social services, recreational and educational programming, and non-denominational religious services.
