SOA and Yonkers Honor Their 2014 Horsemen of the Year

On the evening of January 24, The Standardbred Owners Association of New York, in conjunction with the management of Yonkers Raceway, proudly honored the track's leading driver, trainer and owner for calendar year 2014.

Maine native Jason Bartlett came away with his fourth Yonkers' driving title, finding the winners circle 485 times in 2014 from 2,440 starts, thus winning with nearly 1 in 5 of his mounts.

Trainer Ron Burke, who smashed the national earnings record, eclipsing even Thoroughbred trainer Todd Pletcher's earnings mark, also topped all Yonkers conditioners with over $4.6 million in purse earnings. Burke had a Hilltop Oval leading 144 winners in 2014, which was 26 more than the second-leading trainer.
