There is a good chance that those of us in the claiming game will have horses pass through our stables for only a few races but that doesn’t absolve us of responsibility to these athletes. When we got together to claim a horse, I borrowed from Steve Zorn’s Castle Village Farm a provision to set aside 1% of earnings to go to equine related charities. In the past we have donated to the Don MacBeth Disabled Jockey’s Fund but this year we decided to stay local and changed focus to the equine. This year the recipient of 1% of Tabby Lane’s earnings is the Minnesota Retired Racehorse Project.
Please go say hi to the stand-up folks at Tabby Lane Racing Stables, and thank them for helping retired racehorses. These are the exact kind of people we want in the game! Thanks guys, and best of racing luck!
