More fundraising efforts are underway to support the people involved after a Langley barn went up in flames last weekend, killing seventeen standard-bred race horses.
Executive Director of Harness Racing B.C. Jackson Wittup says the outpouring of support for trainer Bill Davis and owner Rick Mowles has been enormous.
“Lots of equipment, there’s stallions, there’s stuff like hot tubs and cash, you name it it’s absolutely everything, the horse racing industry is such a tight knit industry, and this was such a tragic event that everybody’s jumping on it.”
Fraser Downs is hosting a fundraising event Tuesday June 17th with a wine and cheese reception in the Homestretch at the race track.
The evening will include a silent auction.
Langley Fire and Rescue says they may never know was caused the massive fire.
