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.
Our online summer fundraiser, CARMAthon, is back!. We're encouraging everyone to make a donation in honor of all the horses who have a place in their heart. Heartwarming and uplifting stories of Thoroughbred aftercare will be shared on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts throughout the day. You can also follow along on TVG during their Pacific Classic Day broadcast.
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 350 horses and connected them to homes as equestrian mounts, therapeutic animals, and companions.
Since 2008, CARMA has granted over $4.5 million to non-profit organizations that retire, retrain and re-home Thoroughbreds that have raced at partnering tracks in California. To date, more than 4,000 horses have been helped through our grant process.
