Located just 10 minutes outside New York City, the track hosts the sport’s premier event, the Hambletonian, as well as a full slate of harness and thoroughbred simulcast action and family events. Welcome!

The No. 1 sales agency

Preferred Equine is the  #1 sales agency, selling more horses, for more money, than any individual or company. We’ve got the right contacts – in the right places – to help our customers get top dollar for their racehorses and breeding stock. Preferred Equine, with David Reid at the helm and supported by strong supporting office staff, began selling Standardbred horses in 1988. Since then Preferred has sold over 17,000 horses for a combined gross of over $350 million.


100 years of excellence

Since 1914, Walsh continues its time honored tradition of exceptionally handcrafted equine products into the 2014 Centennial Year. When it comes to racing, Walsh provides the most reliable and durable products on the market. We continue to be dedicated to maintaining the tradition of unsurpassed workmanship and friendly customer service. Our current leadership took the reins in 2001 when Paul Treiber purchased the company. A successful businessman and horseman, Paul leads with a strong desire to maintain the Walsh tradition of workmanship and friendly, efficient customer service. We continue to be the premier manufacturer of Harness racing and Equestrian products in the world. Supported by the industry’s top professionals, we are able to develop new and innovative equipment that helps the horse to perform better and break more records. Our customer’s thoughts, questions and suggestions continue to assist Walsh to stay on the leading edge of the sport. While we manufacture the highest quality products in the world, we want to supply our customers with high quality products that Walsh exclusively distributes in North America. We only choose brands that have the same philosophy in providing products that are exceptional quality for all other aspects of the industry. Walsh continues to be actively involved in supporting the communities and marketplaces that we serve. Our involvement through sponsorships, events and memberships in trade associations is an integral part in promoting the industry as a whole. Thank you for your ongoing support as we celebrate 100 years of tradition and excellence.
