Arapahoe Park presented CANTER Colorado with a check for $10,000 on Sunday's closing day of the meet to recognize and support the work CANTER Colorado does finding homes for retired racehorses.

The money was raised via a $1 entry fee for each horse that ran this season at Arapahoe Park. Those funds were then matched by both the Colorado Horse Racing Association and by Arapahoe Park.

“CANTER Colorado is thrilled to be awarded these funds to support race horses transitioning into new careers, and we are excited about the opportunity to partner with Arapahoe Park and the Colorado Horse Racing Association,” said CANTER Colorado executive director Jamie Girouard.

“With this support, we will be able to offer trainers and owners extended services to help rehabilitate, retrain, and re-home retiring racehorses.”

    See what can happen with a simple one dollar and match? This money will go a long way. This should be standard procedure at every race track but raised to $5 or more, depending on the type of race!!
