Racehorse owner to donate winnings at Fraser Downs to Surrey Food Bank

Here’s a great reason to put your money on Buddy’s Hope this month at Fraser Downs.

His owner and trainer, Daniel Gaboury, has offered to donate all earnings for his horse during the month of December to the Surrey Food Bank.

“Once Christmas is over the food bank supplies get depleted, and hopefully Buddy can help fill those shelves going into the New Year,” he said.

Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino and Harness Racing B.C. will both match Gaboury’s offer, and Jackson Wittup, executive director of Harness Racing B.C., will donate $50 for each of Buddy’s wins.

“Daniel has always contributed to various fundraisers in the backstretch at different racetracks where he has raced, and wanted to do something for the community this year,” Wittup said.

Buddy’s Hope is in the 10th race at Fraser Downs this Sunday afternoon (Dec. 7).
