Harry M. Zweig Memorial Fund for Equine Research

The Harry M. Zweig Memorial Fund for Equine Research at Cornell had a modest beginning as his family’s memorial tribute but has grown to healthy proportion in recent years with the infusion of funds from an amended New York State pari-mutuel law. By legislation, the Zweig Fund receives two percent of all monies accruing to the Agriculture and New York State Horse Breeding Development Fund and theNew York State Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund from the state’s tracks and off-track betting.
