SARATOGA SPRINGS — The New York Race Track Chaplaincy will honor Len Green with the Marylou Whitney Award for his ongoing humanitarian support of the New York backstretch community at its 17th Annual Fundraising Brunch to be held on Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Saratoga National Golf Course in Saratoga Springs. 

Green is the founder and chairman of the New Jersey CPA firm, The Green Group specializing in tax, accounting and consulting especially in the Thoroughbred industry. They have more than 700 equine-related clients, including many of the top-rated partnerships, syndications, as well as fellow horse owners, breeders, trainers, consignors and jockeys.

Individuals and organizations previously honored by the NY Chaplaincy 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., Andy Serling and, last year, Tracy and Todd Pletcher. 

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.
