Tina Mott has been named to the board of directors of Saratoga WarHorse, a not-for-profit organization which uses retired Thoroughbred racehorses to work with service members and veterans who are suffering after experiencing trauma while in the military. Mott has more than 35 years of experience in the Thoroughbred industry and is the wife of Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott.
“We are thrilled to welcome Tina to the Saratoga WarHorse Board of Directors,” said U.S. Army veteran and Saratoga WarHorse Foundation Chief Executive Officer Allison Cherkosly, Ph.D. “Her intense passion for helping veterans, deep background in the Thoroughbred industry and passion for the Saratoga WarHorse program make Tina an ideal leader for our organization. We look forward to working with Tina in this new capacity.”
Mott has served as a volunteer during the organization's program sessions for several years, providing meals for the veteran participants and recording their experience connecting with equine counterparts at Saratoga WarHorse's location in East Greenbush, NY.
“I have always had the utmost respect and gratitude for our veterans, so I was thrilled that the animals that have given my family such a wonderful life could also contribute to the health and well-being of our veterans,” said Mott. “I look forward to working with Allison, my fellow board members and the Saratoga WarHorse team on growing this enriching and important program.”
