Memorial Donation To After The Races: Giving In The Name Of DerbyPosted on May 27, 2017
With heavy hearts, we are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Mary’s beloved Derby this weekend.
Together for more than 18 years, their journey was that of a fairytale. To honor Derby (a unicorn of unicorns), I wanted to do something in his name that was a bit more distinctive, given his own distinctiveness.
Please join us in celebrating Derby’s life (1992-2017) and pay tribute by making a GoFundMe donation to help ensure a better second career for off-the-track thoroughbreds at After The Races, a 501(c)3 Thoroughbred rehabilitation and rehoming center located in Nottingham, Pennsylvania.
Mary chose this particular rescue to pay tribute to Derby’s thoroughbred heritage and background. After his racing career, Derby went on to be successful doing Hunters, Jumpers, Eventing, Dressage, paperchases and more. It is our combined belief that the thoroughbred ex-racehorse has the trainability and talent to do anything after racing, so we want to continue supporting second careers by giving to this charity.
