The Mathis stuffed horses, which were available for a $ 20 donation at Santa Anita Park on opening day last Sunday, generated a total of $ 25,000 for the California Retirement Management Account (CARMA) and thoroughbred tracking. Opening day attendees also received water bottles or Mathis Mile hats. Mathis and Santa Anita Park have already pledged to do the same promotion next year.
“We are delighted to have raised $ 25,000 for CARMA, a non-profit organization that will ensure that every racehorse has a bright future after the race,” said Bill Mathis, President of Mathis Brothers. “With the thousands of fans who attended the Santa Anita Opening Day, Mathis Brothers are proud to have helped put the horse first.”
“We cannot thank our fans and the Mathis brothers enough for their tremendous support in tracking thoroughbreds,” said Nate Newby, senior vice president and general manager of Santa Anita. “Every dollar raised through this promotion goes directly to CARMA to support the rehabilitation, recycling and retirement of California Thoroughbreds.”
