California Retirement Management Account
CARMA is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing funding for the rehabilitation, retraining and/or retirement of California-raced Thoroughbred horses.
CARMAthon is back for a third year, and we need your help! This online fundraiser is CARMA's biggest event of the year, and we invite you to join us in celebrating and supporting our retired Thoroughbreds. Please help us reach our goal this year by donating online now through August 20th!
Helping Retired Racehorses
As a service to Thoroughbred owners and trainers who need help retiring their racehorses, CARMA’s Placement Program is a safe way to transition the horse into the next phase of its life. Since its introduction, the program has assisted more than 400 horses and connected them to homes as equestrian mounts, therapeutic animals, and companions.
Since 2008, CARMA has granted over $4.8 million to non-profit organizations that retire, retrain and re-home Thoroughbreds that have raced at partnering tracks in California. To date, more than 4,500 horses have been helped through our grant process.
