Oak Tree Racing Association Joins Unwanted Horse Coalition

WASHINGTON, DC – January 10, 2008. The Unwanted Horse Coalition today announced their newest member organization, Oak Tree Racing Association of Arcadia, California.

“Oak Tree Racing is another wonderful addition to our already distinguished list of members,” said Dr. Tom Lenz, UHC Chairman. “We are excited to welcome Oak Tree to the table and look forward to working with them on promoting the goals and mission of the Coalition.”

The Oak Tree Racing Association, a non-profit corporation that conducts and promotes thoroughbred racing in Southern California, was founded in 1969. Since then, Oak Tree has donated more than $25 million in net profits to mostly horse related charitable organizations. The Association runs the annual Oak Tree race meet at Santa Anita Park and has also hosted the Breeder’s Cup World Thoroughbred Championships three times (1986, 1993, and 2003) and will host the event for the fourth time this fall at Santa Anita.

The Unwanted Horse Coalition is a broad alliance of equine organizations that have joined under the umbrella of the American Horse Council. Its mission is to reduce the number of unwanted horses and to improve their welfare through education and the efforts of organizations committed to the health, safety, and responsible care and disposition of these horses. Its message to the industry is “Own Responsibly.”

The Unwanted Horse Coalition offers educational and promotional materials, including an informational brochure, flyers, and the “Own Responsibly” horse ownership handbook. The list of member organizations and a nationwide directory of facilities that accept and/or place horses in need is also available. Additional information about the Unwanted Horse Coalition is available by logging on to http://www.unwantedhorsecoalition.org or by calling 202-296-4031.
