A pair of winners, After the Races and the Retired Racehorse Project, opted to split the winnings of the Resolute Racing's Poker For Ponies Tournament held in the lead up to the GI Kentucky Derby earlier this month. Hosted by the Louisville Thoroughbred Society May 1, the tournament invited players to pledge winnings to one of 20 pre-selected Thoroughbred aftercare organizations. Jimmy Gladwell and Gavin O'Connor each tied for the win and earned $32,500 apiece for their two respective organizations.

“Support from the racing industry has played a vital role in making our work possible,” said At The Races Founder and Director Bonnie McRae. “Thank you, John Stewart, for your vision and initiative to be part of the aftercare process, and of course to Gavin for playing hard on behalf of our organization. Your actions have made an impact.”

RRP Executive Director Kirsten Green added: “The RRP is honored to have been selected as a beneficiary of the Poker For Ponies tournament amongst many other worthy aftercare organizations, and we are proud to share in the winning outcome with After the Races.”
