Novak Receives 2013 Buddy Raines Award

New Monmouth Park logo
Everett “Ebby” Novak, an owner and breeder for more than 25 years, was named the 2013 recipient of the Virgil “Buddy” Raines Distinguished Achievement Award.

The Raines Award, instituted at Monmouth Park in 1996, honors men and women who have demonstrated a continuing commitment to the sport of Thoroughbred racing as an owner or trainer, and whose conduct has been exemplary for professionalism, integrity and service to the sport.

Mr. Novak, who purchased New Farm in Marlton, N.J. in 1988, was the 18th recipient of the Raines Award.  To date, top runners carrying the New Farm’s purple and black colors have included Conveyor, Appealing Skier, Sacred Honour, Meadow Monster, Phone The Doctor, Forest Heiress, Wild Snitch and Wildcat Heir, who sired Rainbow Heir, winner of this year’s Grade 3 Jersey Shore Stakes.

The award is named for the late Virgil “Buddy” Raines, one of racing’s most venerable figures, who was a regular at Monmouth Park before his retirement.  Mr. Raines trained horses for 65 years and won the Preakness Stakes in 1962 with Greek Money.

Each recipient of the Raines Award receives a special trophy emblematic of the honor.  All winners of the award have their names placed on a special plaque that is displayed in the Monmouth Park Clubhouse.
