Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue
Named one of beneficiaries of Pimlico Racetrack Horse Show
Glenville, PA - Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue (www.saveahorsenow.org) is honored to announce they have been selected as one of the beneficiaries of the Totally Thoroughbred Horse Show at Pimlico Racetrack, Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday July 14, 2012.
The horse show is the brainchild of Georganne Hale, Maryland Jockey Club Racing Secretary and Stacie Clark-Rogers, manager of Adena Springs Retirement program in Canada.
There will be eight different classes held in the infield of the racetrack during the day with six ribbons awarded for each class and more than $4000 in prize money. HTRV will streamline the horse show live from Pimlico.
Classes include: “Old Hilltop Leadline, “MJC” Walk, “MHBA” Walk Trot, “The Jockey Club” Walk/Trot/Canter, “HRTV” Trot over Fences, “MTHA” Trot over Fences, “Adena Springs” Trot over Fences and the “Pimlico Perpetual Trophy”. Vendor tents will be set up in the infield and spectators are welcome.
Jo Deibel, Founder and Director of Angel Acres, said, “Angel Acres is super happy that the Md. Jockey Club and Adena Springs Retirement Farm put this show together as it helps to raise awareness about all of the outstanding Thoroughbreds that are available and are looking for second careers at rescues around the nation.”
The money from the horse show entries will be divided among 3 horse rescue charities that have helped the track find homes for horses that raced in Maryland. In addition to Angel Acres they include, MidAtlantic Horse Rescue and Thoroughbred Placement Rescources. Both Angel Acres and MidAtlantic Horse Rescue are accredited by GFAS.
