Our goal is to connect riders, horses, horsemen, race secretaries and staff, and race enthusiasts to help grow the sport. As interest in the sport grew, RUS New York was formed in early 2014 to assist with the organization and management of Racing Under Saddle series and races across the state. The main goal is to promote RUS as a sport, increase interest in Standardbred racing, and showcase the versatility of the Standardbred breed.
What is Racing Under Saddle?
Also known as Monte Racing, Racing Under Saddle (RUS) is a hybrid between harness racing and thoroughbred racing.
