On Wednesday, August 23rd around 6 pm, a fire started at the Goshen Historic Track and quickly spread. There was no loss of life and more than 30 horses were rescued from their burning stalls.
The following day, work crews were able to salvage some mementos from the historic stables and blacksmith shop.
The track will be entering its 108th season of harness racing in 2018. Goshen Historic Track is the oldest active harness racing track in the world. Donations are currently being accepted to help rebuild. To donate, click here.
