Barretts designates portion of sales commissions to wildfire recovery


Barretts Equine Sales will donate 10 percent of sales commissions from its January mixed sale to the California Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Foundation.

The CTHF, a non-profit charitable foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life for backstretch workers at California racetracks and training centers, is among the organizations working to aid displaced horsemen following last week’s fire at the San Luis Rey Downs training center.

The horses-of-all-ages sale will be Wednesday, Jan. 17, at The Finish Line Sports Grill at Fairplex, in Pomona, Calif. In addition to the donated commissions, live and silent auctions of stallion seasons, equine artwork, and racing memorabilia will be held the day of the sale to raise additional funds.
