Horse Racing Partnerships First Charity Designed to Care for Partnership Horses After Their Racing Careers.
I am so excited to announce the formation of LRF Cares, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization which will provide aftercare for horse racing partnership horses and other noteworthy causes.
The first goal of LRF Cares is to make sure every Little Red Feather horse, whether they retire in LRF colors or not, is given a proper chance at a second career. If a second career is not obtainable, LRF Cares will find suitable homes for all of its horses.
In the past, LRF found homes or second careers for its retired racehorses, like McLovin above, who became a well-known hunter jumper. Now, LRF Cares will take over this responsibility and hopefully add in a tracking system to keep up with retired horses and jump in if needed.
Owning racehorses comes with great responsibility and my father instilled in me the importance of giving back. Besides a full time job, and four children, I watched him donate his time to making our community of Beverly Hills, CA better (over the span of 20 years, he was Mayor, Board of Education President and Treasurer). I’m hopeful we have and will continue to make a similar impact in the horse racing industry.
