The MSBA encourages all our members to be active.  We will continue to seek input and ideas for the best strategies to continue this growth.


We will continue to market the Maryland Standardbred breeding industry throughout the year.  We encourage our members to help us with many of these initiatives as they progress throughout the year.  If anyone has ideas on marketing the Standardbred breed in Maryland please email MSBA President, Jackie MacLeod at:  Suggestions are always welcome.
