“All in favor, say ‘Aye” declared California Retirement Management Account President Howard Zucker to close the final 2017 grant meeting, and with resounding gusto the CARMA Board echoed, “Aye!” The New Year is bright and full of promise for CARMA’s 23 Aftercare Partners, as they will be receiving approximately $438,000 in grants allocated for retired California-raced Thoroughbreds.
