Over 3,500 people make up the community of workers who toil behind the scenes in support of the Thoroughbred racing industry at Belmont Park, Aqueduct Racetrack, and Saratoga Springs Race Course. The New York Race Track Chaplaincy ministers to the heart and soul of this entire community of stable workers and their families with children’s enrichment, teen mentoring, women’s programming, social service, recreational, and educational programs as well as non-denominational religious services. The NY Chaplaincy provides these extensive services with the intent of satisfying spiritual needs and basic human necessities, as well as providing the tools necessary for the realization of personal strength and growth through a connection to God and community.
