Ratnik aka Comrade is 2012 17 H OTTB who came to HART last January with big ambitions to be our thoroughbred ambassador at the 2016 Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover. Unfortunately a small knee chip has led to soundness issues that kept him from going. But, there is light at the end of the tunnel! With a minor surgical procedure this big guy has a great prognosis to go on to do great things! AND, because he raced last in December of 2015 and has not been ridden he is eligible to try again for the 2017 makeover! This campaign will help cover his care and recovery costs after surgery and up to the makeover next October! Please, join team Comrade as we get him sound and ready to take on the challenge of winning the title of 2017 America's Most Wanted Thoroughbred!! All donors will receive a photo certificate of Comrade and updates on his progress! Help this beautiful boy today!!
Our goal is to provide education and awareness regarding the plight that some OTTBs face when injured or retired and can no longer race. While HART does intervene and rescue these horses from dire circumstances, we also work tirelessly to provide a better future for these majestic athletes. This is done by providing options and intervening before they end up neglected, abused, or worse, at a Kill Pen. How can you help?
