Canter opens new Chapter at Mountainer Casino, Racetrack & Resort

November 10, 2008 (Chester, WV) CANTER, The Communication Alliance To Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses, is excited to announce its new chapter at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort. This program offers a free horse sale listing service to trainers and owners looking to sell their racers who are either to slow to run, or are at the end of their racing careers.

“We are pleased to offer this free program to our owners and trainers who are looking to place their racing horses in new careers,” said Rose Mary Williams, director of racing at Mountaineer “CANTER has a proven track record helping trainers to sell and place their ex-race horses.”

CANTER volunteers are the driving force behind the group’s success.

“Our all volunteer organization is dedicated to helping these horses find new homes, and we are pleased that Mountaineer is offering this free program to its horsemen,” said Nancy Koch, executive director of CANTER. CANTER volunteers will be contacting trainers in person to list and photograph horses for sale. Rachael Paris of New Cumberland, WV, will serve as Director of Volunteers for the Mountaineer Canter Chapter. Paris may be contacted at 304-564-5958 should anyone wish to list their horses. Mountaineer horses available for sale or placement will be now available to the general public at http://www.canterusa.org.

CANTER (The Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses) is a free service offered to racing trainers and owners to help them find non-race homes for their retiring racehorses. Nationwide, the program has helped over 8,000 horses transition from racing since its inception in 1997. Its CANTER is approved to operate as a 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS.
