LRF Cares Helping Find New Homes And Second Careers For Former Racehorses LRF Cares Helping Find New Homes And Second Careers For Former Racehorses LRF Cares Helping Find New Homes And Second Careers For Former Racehorses

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. Now, LRF Cares is helping with this responsibility and is working on a tracking system to keep up with retired horses and jump in if needed.The board consists of Gary Fenton, Billy Koch and LRF Partner Renee Parcell. LRF invites all partners who wish to help to contact Renee at lrfcares@gmail.com or (480)710-6337.

Tooreen Dancer

Little Red Feather Tooreen Dancer

Newly purchased Tooreen Dancer (IRE) arrived at Jet Pets in Los Angeles for what was certainly not the customary 3 day quarantine period. Her importation bloods returned positive for Glanders, a contagious disease first used in the 1940s as a bioterrorism agent.  Normal protocols call for the horse to be humanly euthanized. LRF called its attorney and spent countless hours and money trying to cut through the red tape. Surely this was a false positive and indeed it was.  Through LRF’s efforts, Tooreen was saved and went on to earn $132,358 with four wins in seven career starts. In addition, and more importantly new USDA protocols were put in place to protect future horses from unfair Glander’s false positives.

McLovin

Little Red Feather McLovin

McLovin found a secondary career competing in a number of 3-star and 4-star events including a 32nd-place finish in the 2016 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. He was so popular he was later sold to Top Botch Farms and syndicated to hopefully compete at the World Equestrian Games. What makes this story even better is one of his former LRF partners discovered his new career and asked to buy back into the syndication and continue with McLovin’s scondary career.

Alaskan Son

Little Red Feather Alaskan Son

After toiling in cheap races at tracks like Fair Grounds, Indiana Grand Race Course, and Ellis Park, LRF Cares stepped in and purchased Alaskan Son and retired him. He was sent to Jenny Earhart’s farm in Orange, CA where she works to find proper placements for our retired thoroughbreds. Jenny found a beautiful family in Norco, CA, where he’s currently doing western pleasure, gymkhanas, hunter jumpers and jumpers! They are showing 2’3-2’6, but at home they are jumping him 3’0+.
