The New York Racing Association Inc. (NYRA) today unveiled a new corporate logo in conjunction with the Stars & Stripes Racing Festival, featuring five graded stakes races with purses totaling $3.7 million.
The new NYRA logo utilizes a red, white and blue color scheme displayed over a blue shield focused around a thoroughbred striding forward to the finish line.
“This bold new logo reflects NYRA’s commitment to protect and grow the sport in our role as a leading thoroughbred racing organization in the United States,” said NYRA President and CEO Chris Kay. “This is the right logo for the right time at NYRA, conveying our passion for the sport and the bright future ahead.”
Starting today, the new logo will be prominently displayed throughout Belmont Park, in the daily Post Parade program, on NYRA.com and all NYRA digital properties and applications. Moving forward, the logo and associated branding will also be incorporated across Saratoga Race Course and Aqueduct Racetrack.
