Cards 4 CARMA

Over $70,000 Raised at 7th Annual CARMA Cares Charity Fundraiser


“Cards 4 CARMA” a rousing success in 2014

Many thanks to everyone who attended CARMA’s 7th Annual CARMA Cares fundraiser – we could not have done it without you!  Stay tuned for details on our 2015 event – we’ll be at the Del Mar Hilton on July 18, 2015.  Looking forward to seeing everyone there!


CARMA is funded by individual donations and by a 0.3 percent deduction from purses to help fund equine retirement.  This deduction, one owners can opt-out of, is used to help support equine retirement farms and other non-profit programs that care for and retrain retired Thoroughbred racehorses.   Since its inception in 2008, CARMA has granted over $2.418 million which has provided care to hundreds of Thoroughbreds that participated in California races at some point in their career. Over 80 percent of the funds raised by the organization are utilized in the day-to-day care of these horses.
