The Finger Lakes Thoroughbred Adoption Program plans to build a stand-alone adoption facility on the track grounds, to open next June, as a showcase for adoptable horses and a headquarters for the organization. More than $26,000 for the project was raised at an Aug. 18 benefit dinner, and an additional $60,000 will come from New York State. . . . The Jockey Club has added features, including step-by-step processing and additional "help" windows and user tips, to its online registration service, www.registry.jockeyclub.com. The enhanced service also will offer a larger size limit for uploaded photos.
