– Willowdale Point-to-Point – Thank You!

It was an exciting day of racing under beautiful, sunny blue skies at the Willowdale Point to Point on Saturday (see results HERE).

The Point-to Point was a “one off” event, exclusively produced for the horsemen who, like many other professionals, have been extremely negatively impacted as a result of COVID-19 which has reduced their opportunities to work and compete.

Strict COVID protocols were in place, including COVID screening and temperature check and no spectators were permitted.

We are so grateful to Kathy Neilson for her leadership and fundraising efforts and were honored to be able to host the first, Louis “Paddy” Neilson, III Apprentice timber race. We deeply appreciate the financial support from BNY Mellon Wealth Management and Selkirk Partners for their sponsorship of the very special race.

Without the support of generous donors and incredible volunteers, the day would not have been possible!

We look forward to welcoming back our friends on Saturday May 8, 2021 for the 28th Running of the Willowdale Steeplechase as we race to raise money for our beneficiaries: the Stroud Water Research Center and Penn Vet New Bolton Center.
