Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation gets $74K donation


Los Angeles philanthropist Sophie Stenbeck has donated $74,000 to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, designating the gift "to cover costs for preventive veterinary care, medical treatment for illness and injuries, as well as emergency care, for all horses in TRF's programs for whom vet care is not already sponsored by other donors," according to a retirement foundation release Monday.

"I know the cost of keeping a herd of 1,000 horses healthy," Stenbeck said in the release. "I am happy to provide the TRF these funds so that good care is not an issue."
