Riding For Their Lives

Horse racing handicapper, author, and good friend of Canterbury, Mark Cramer, is raising funds in a unique way to help retired racehorses. He and a friend are undertaking a 600 mile bike ride criss-crossing through France and visiting 11 racetracks. You can learn more about this worthy venture and maybe make a donation to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation by visiting Riding For Their Lives.

Here is a clip frm Mark’s website:

We all know an answer for the preventing the slaughter of gallant thoroughbreds once their career is over. A microscopic percentage of the handle and purse money, an amount no one would notice, could be redirected to receiving retired thoroughbreds on farms and then looking for their new homes.
