Hello, my name is John Cherwa and acceptable aback to our horse antagonism newsletter as we move into the aftermost anniversary of the Los Alamitos meet.
Let’s absorb a little added time communicable up on account to advice and account the victims of the San Luis Rey training centermost fire.
In the aftermost newsletter we threw out some account to accession acquaintance and money to advice those afflicted by the fire. Santa Anita listened, and additionally accustomed actual agnate account from abounding in the antagonism community. So we are all on the aforementioned page.
However, Santa Anita wants to be alert about affective too fast and risking the bloom of the horses. They appetite to accomplish abiding that all the SLR horses are up to whatever is planned. I’m academic there isn’t a blueprint for accepting bigger afterwards smoke assimilation or any added concealed injuries of actuality in the bake area. They additionally charge to archive which horses were bottomward there and what chic altitude they ability acquire been. Not as accessible as it sounds.
They affiance that they will be accomplishing article but it’s acceptable not activity to be at the alpha of the meeting.
Now, I’ve been in the account business for about Methuselah-like years, and I apperceive that every adventure has a lifespan. And it’s usually not that long. The accepted accessible will alpha to balloon about these horses and this tragedy as it is replaced by account that is added immediate. That’s aloof the way it is, annihilation nefarious.
So I, and you, charge to be acute and accumulate allurement aback article will appear or “down the road” becomes never. I assurance the association at Santa Anita on this, but a little affable admonition every already in a while will be good.
OK, some facts. A lot of the horse citizenry has been confused to added farms and such from Del Mar.
The California Horse Antagonism Board has the afterlife assessment at 46 with alone a scattering of horses unaccounted for. Let’s achievement they acquire all been fostered on a acreage and will be reunited with their trainers and owners actual soon.
There were about 260 thoroughbreds at Del Mar and they were accepted to break there for several weeks and gradually affluence in to all-encompassing training. There were at atomic 300 added breeds additionally housed at the track.
Del Mar is additionally the home to about 200 abiding workers, blockage in 160 rooms.
Del Mar will abide as a training ability while San Luis Rey gets operational. Can’t say it loud abundant how Del Mar stepped up. And Santa Anita and Los Alamitos were additionally apartment horses. But Del Mar fabricated the best faculty because it doesn’t acquire to run a accommodated for seven months.
The gofundme folio (thoroughbredcare) has aloft about $600,000.
There is addition one (rallyformartinebellocq), that will advice trainer Martine Bellocq afterwards she suffered astringent burns over best of her anatomy while aggravating to accomplishment her horses. The California Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Foundation in affiliation with the California Thoroughbred Trainers additionally has a addition armpit for Bellocq at CTHFcares.org.
And artisan Niska Cheffet is accommodating to accommodate her aptitude to abduction anyone’s horse for breed for a $1,000 donation. She can be accomplished at Niska@earthlink.net.
Here are some thoughts from subscribers.
“After the accretion and things get aback to a affinity of normal, I would adulation to see a canonizing congenital to all the horses who were lost. It could be a simple granite brace with the names of the 46 horses who died.
“Something like: ‘CALIFORNIA DIAMOND, Harbor the Gold, Carrie’s a Jewel, 3YO Colt’ …and 45 added names.
“If I bethink correctly, Del Mar has already interred the charcoal of racehorses aural its infield. Placing a canonizing bean there would be fitting.”
“Maybe they could abode contest with the accepted Cal-Bred supplements but belted for SLRD horses only. Maybe accommodate donations as “added monies” as well.
How about all horsemen’s fees paid by donations? Put the chat out now to acquire donations but accord horses time to balance from any concrete or affecting trauma. Run contest after in the meet.”
“We are a baby Foundation (ALO Foundation), amuse analysis our website www.alotteopportunity.org and we acquire rescues both absent and others. We are on Wheeler Canyon Rd. in Santa Paula. We charge to re-establish our buildings, all our tack and gear. Luckily all our horses were adored and are currently at the fairgrounds in Ventura. The Thomas Blaze advance so bound we had to let apart the aftermost six horses. They were after reunited with the others due to some acceptable Samaritans who begin them in time.
“Our horses acquire accomplished their assisting and some not-so-profitable antagonism careers and are now in the control of our non-profit foundation. We are almost new (April 2016). We are artlessly renting a allotment of acreage area we had put up our own facilities. We absent our tack room, appointment and augment rooms, all our tack and gear, over 20 saddles and accessory for as abounding horses. We charge everything. We absent all our food and augment as well.
“We, too, acquire a GoFundMe, and a donation button on our website and FB page; but because our horses are no best earning money we are the abandoned ones. There are OTTB horses who charge advice because of blaze accident and loss.
“We charge a prefabricated augment allowance and addition beyond one for our tack allowance and office. We charge aggregate abroad as able-bodied and would agreeably acquire any acclimated items that are not bare anymore. The horses and ALOF would be always grateful. All donations are tax free, ALOF is a registered 501(c)3.”
(My note: It is acceptable to bethink that not all losses were at San Luis Rey.)

I got a few responses but I would like some more. And, if you remember, I said I charge aboriginal and aftermost names if you appetite me to accede your acquiescence (unless you are Oprah, Beyonce or a Brazilian soccer player). Some of you absent that, so you’ll charge to re-submit.
