June Placement Program Graduates

After our record breaking 14 placements last month, we thought June would be relatively slow. For once, we were actually glad to be proven wrong which means we must be doing something right! This month six wonderful retired racehorses graduated the Placement Program and have started working toward their future as equestrian mounts and treasured friends. We are looking forward to a sun-soaked summer at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and hope to see you all at our CARMAcares Fundraiser: Hoedown for Horses on July 22 in the Del Mar Paddock at 6:30pm. This is our biggest event of the year and we would love to see our supporters attend! Cost of admission is a $125-dollar donation which goes directly towards helping retired racehorses – including those you will read about below and many more like them. Alright, let’s meet June’s Placement Program Grads! Read More
