The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) has been gifted more than 500 essential equine vaccines from Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health. The vaccines will be used to innoculate retired horses in the TRF's care.

“Helping organizations like the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is at the core of what we do,” said Steve Boren, vice president of the U.S. livestock and equine businesses at Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health. “We are honored to support an organization that makes a difference in the lives of horses.”

According to TRF board member Anita Motion, TRF is working with Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health to provide vaccines for thousands of other horses as well.

“Our goal was to ensure that as many horses as possible benefit from this donation,” said Motion. “We are so pleased to have played a part in extending Boehringer Ingelheim's gesture beyond our herd of 500 to thousands of other deserving horses in the care of charities across the United States.”
