Residents put money on a horse not in the field in this year’s Kentucky Derby. During the annual Derby
Day, residents—in their biggest and brightest hats—raised over $600 to support Sir Gus, a 25-year-old retired racehorse at Brook Hill Farm.
Brook Hill Farm is a non-profit organization that takes in neglected or injured horses so they can rest, recover and start new lives. The farm also has programs that allows seniors, at-risk teens, veterans and those with diverse needs to promote physical, mental and emotional well-being.
The donation will go towards helping feed and care for Sir Gus and horses who need a little extra TLC. The funds will also support programs designed to improve quality of life for seniors, veterans and those with disabilities through equine therapy activities at Brook Hill Farm.
