We Owe It to Them

It's getting late in the racing season and everyone involved in the industry has made money on our equine stars one way or another.
It's time to give something back.
LONGRUN THOROUGHBRED RETIREMENT SOCIETY puts on its 2nd annual Gala tomorrow night, Sept. 29 at the Woodbine trackside tent and some 300 tickets have been sold.
Six years into its charitable status, LongRun has been helping horsepeople move retired racehorses to adoptive homes - if owners can't do it themselves.
More than 150 horses have been moved.
Now, with winter approaching and some 30 horses in the program waiting for homes,. LongRun needs the help of the industry in order to feed and take care of these brave animals.
LongRun has had incredible support from the organizations involved in the racing industry but there is work to do yet.
Without the horses, there would be no Woodbine, no racing industry, no jobs for you and I.
There is NO excuse not to give generously this season to help our heroes.
