September 2018 Member of the Month:
arry K. Schwartz’s accomplishments in horse racing are just as impressive as they are in business. Co-founder of the Calvin Klein fashion empire, the Bronx native also helmed the New York Racing Association for four years as chairman of its board of directors. On August 11, he earned his first grade 1 win at Saratoga when his Empire State homebred Voodoo Song took the Fourstardave Handicap (G1T).
Owner of Stonewall Farm, located in Westchester County, Schwartz caught the horse bug at a young age. “I used to go to the racetrack when I was a little boy,” he recalled. “I used to love going to the track, going to Belmont, going to the trotters at night. I always enjoyed racing and then I started reading about it, reading about the bloodlines, the genetics of the sport; it always intrigued me.”
