I have contributed directly to this organization without any qualms about how the money is being spent. I know they can save as many horses as possible through good financial management. They are very thorough in all their fundraising events. They have excellent legal support as well. They work tirelessly to educate the public against slaughter of horses and work constantly to take horses from the racetrack to retrain them for another carear.

I adopted A Sharp, aka Storm, in November of 2014. Marlene also has another retired tb at the same farm I boarded from, a wonderful boy named chocolate knight. Race fund is very methodical in chosen the right home for a retired race horse. They are genuinely concerned for the horse, and continue to be involved in their lives. I speak with them regularly, and am blessed that my horse was rescued and cared for by this wonderful group of people.

The most proffessional, expericed and compassionate organization dedicated to the resuce, rehabiliation and securing a permanent home for America's treasured Off the Track Throroughbred horses. It is my pleasure to donate to this cause. I was personally touched as well as our community by one such horse who was known to us in 2013. "Quiet Dare". It was an honor to photograph him upon his arrival home to his owner, Sara. Thank you RACE Fund for all the love and efforts to secure his safety along with all the other horses I have witnessed since that time. What an awesome group of women doing God's work. God Bless you for your continued dedication.

Finding another life for a racehorse that can not race is what we ALL need to do. R.A.C.E. is doing just that. They have been WONDERFUL in their efforts!

RACE Fund literally is a lifesaver for OTTBs. Our small group of friends rescued a son of Honor And Glory named Noggin Dude. He needed a safe harbor with people who care after his difficult experience. Marlene and Craig were amazing and Dude has blossomed under their good care. I would aalways tr
ust them implicitly.

Always impressed with the work RACE Fund is doing! Great at communication and appreciative of any gift (no matter how small.) They are professional and I'm am amazed at how they are able to do so much with their limited funding sources. Keep up the good work! I am comfortable in the knowledge that Marlene and her volunteers are working so very hard to better the lives of the animals they touch.

This organization helps fill and extremely important function, helping to find homes for retired TB race horses, ones that the industry does not help (shame on the race industry). They do it right, and the needs of the horse always come first. I hope to be in a position soon to accept one or more of these magnificent beings.

I met a gorgeous OTTB at a local rescue. I was considering adopting him and found out the next day he suffered a leg fracture that could heal with stall rest or may need surgery. He needed more than two mo this to rehab and that rescue just could not give him what he needed. The RACE fund took him back and gave him the care he needed. A noble race horse who deserve a retirement and excellent care! They truly care for these Horses and it is a wonderful organization!!!!! There should be more that are honest like this one and jot out to make a profit !!!! It's all for the horses!

Race fund is an invaluable organization that assisted me with a very special forgotten Thoroughbred. Promethia is a daughter of Alydar and just turned 30. I beleive she is the oldest thoroughbred they have ever worked with. They brought awareness to her plight and she now is happy, has a job of "baby-sitter" to some orphan foals and is enjoying life. They are saving lives one at a time. Promethia'stime time may not be long, but it will be the best she has had in years. Thank you for my special girl!

The R.A.C.E. Fund is one of the best organizations out there helping thoroughbred horses retire from racing. Their number one concern is the horses.
