High Heels Racing Syndicate, which closed its books after earning over €40,000 with 53% top-three finishes from 71 races, will donate its remaining funds of €3,000 to Au-Dela des Pistes. The latter is a non-profit organisation that promotes and helps with the welfare and re-homing of ex-racehorses in France. More than 600 horses have found new homes since it was founded in 2016.
“I would like to thank the incredible generosity of our numerous syndicate partners who did not hesitate a second to support the cause,” said High Heels Racing Syndicate co-founder and joint-manager Amelie Lemercier. “Without any doubt, I believe that rehoming and retraining of Thoroughbreds is an integral part of the racing industry and it is crucial for the durability of our sport. Being a committee member of Au-Dela des Pistes myself, I am delighted that the syndicate was able to help the charity.”
Added Au-Dela des Pistes President and High Heels Racing Syndicate member Aliette Forien, “I would like to say a very big thank you to the High Heels Syndicate that chose to transfer the funds from the closure of its activities to our association.”
