To appreciate and be thankful for our blessings should be a daily occurance. But sometimes it's easy to forget the "giving back" part. As horsepeople and racing fans,it's important to remember horse racing charities.
There are any number of horse rescues and retirement farms. There are several charities that help disabled riders and their families. Contributions for further research in equine health is another way to participate.Other smaller organizations, be it backstretch childcare, or backstretch employee aid, tend to those in need.
Thanksgiving is a good time to remember those who need our help.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving with continued blessings for you and your families.
One of my most favorite Thanksgiving Day horseracing memories was 2007.
