Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue




Be A Horse Angel!

Give the Gift of Life!  As a Thank-You, Birthday Present or Special Occasion, consider supporting one of our beautiful Thoroughbreds!

Many of our horses remain in our care for extensive periods of time, and their expenses are supported entirely or partially by grants and general donations. Only a handful of very fortunate horses are supported in-part or in-whole by private "feed sponsors".  

If you donate $20 or more in the name of your colleague, friend or family member to any of our horses, not only is your gift tax deductible for 2012, but we will mail them a version of the following thank-you card (inside pages only are shown).  The text and photograph will be "personalized" to the horse you choose for them to sponsor: this one is for Rush! 

Some of the Horses Available For Sponsorship

Some of the following horses have been with SCTR since 2008 and are available for adoption, but either have no sponsors, or
partial sponsorship only. Some are long-term residents or retirees which SCTR will likely be supporting indefinitely. Can you help
one of them by giving a gift of feed sponsorship?  

1. Ashland Rose (1989)

This lovely black-type race mare by Flying Paster was taken in by SCTR in 2010 when the rescue she was placed in could no
longer care for her. Ashland had been formerly rescued from slaughter at auction in 2009. Ashland's rehab was slow, but she is
now healthy and enjoying life in pasture with our other retirees. 
One time sponsorship checks can be mailed to:
SCTR, P.O. Box 5, Norco, CA 92860 along with the name and address of the person to whom you are gifting the
sponsorship.  To donate a one time gift of any amount to Ashland's care or become a monthly sponsor, please use

5. Noble Gambler (2004)

This incredibly handsome and enormous young gelding was taken in by SCTR after breaking down in his second and final race at
Hollywood Park in July 2008. Gambler's rehab has been long and slow; he had destroyed his suspensory apparatus and sustained a "low bow", but he is now sound as a paddock pet although likely to be a permanent SCTR resident. Gambler resides at our rehabilitation facility in Moreno Valley. Gambler has been fortunate to enjoy sponsorship from our friends Crick and Jamie (thank you!),  however he would appreciate additional feed sponsors.

6. Persistent (2002)

Percy was rescued from a kill buyer's lot in December 2008, in horrible body condition, with desperately overgrown feet, and an
old ankle injury. His feet were in such bad shape that it took farrier work until February 2010, for him to be comfortable, but he
is now available for adoption as a flat trail or arena horse. Percy resides at our Adoption Center in Apple Valley. Percy has two
sponsors, Melissa and Kara (thank you!), however he would greatly appreciate additional sponsors to his care.

Rosa was rescued at auction in early 2010, her second run through the auction ring within a few months. Rosa is

9. Shelley Creek (2007)

Shelley was first seen at auction as a yearling in December 2008, and was rescued at auction when she ran through a second
time the following month in January 2009. Shelley had been started under saddle despite severe inflammation in her knees,
and a crooked left front leg. The inflammation subsided, and her knees closed, however her left front leg will always be crooked
and she will be unable to sustain the weight of a rider. Shelley is retired with SCTR, and resides in pasture with several other
SCTR retirees and long-term residents. She has been fortunate to enjoy sponsorship from our friends Jamie and Jen
(thank you!), but would greatly appreciate additional sponsors to her care.
