Wilder schoolDriver Mike Wilder and trainer Spencer Kahrig took time out of their hectic schedules on Thursday morning (March 3), volunteering their time to read to a classroom of kids at Trinity North elementary school in Washington.

Wilder and Kahrig shared duties reading “Stable Girl,” a kids book written by Patricia Harrison Easton that features a day in the life of a young girl at the Snyder Stable at The Meadows.

“It couldn’t have gone better,” said Wilder.  “I was really impressed with the kids and the questions they asked.  It was a group of fourth and fifth graders and they had done their homework before our visit.  They asked a lot of excellent questions about harness racing to both of us.”

The children were given goodie bags courtesy of the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association, including T-shirts, hats and schedules for the 2016 racing season at The Meadows.
