Fallen Horses Laid to Rest at Tioga

Saturday, November 11, 2023

The 30 horses that perished in Thursday’s barn fire have been given a proper burial near the backstretch of Tioga Downs.


A monument inscribed with the names of the fallen horses (listed below) will be installed to memorialize them.


Fellow horsemen and women, as they do, have rallied to support those touched by this tragic event with great compassion and generosity.


All of the efforts, contributions and tributes are greatly appreciated.
