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.
