Forego Fund Established by TRF

Martha Gerry, who raced the champion Forego, has helped the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation establish a fund in his name to help feed the 600+ horses currently being cared for by the program.
Gerry has agreed to lend the name of her former runner to establish the Forego Fund. She also made a financial contribution to the ongoing fund.

The TRF helps provide a home for retired racehorses.

"It's a very worthwhile cause to rescue these horses from slaughter," Gerry said. "I hope that the name of Forego will help raise money for the TRF."

"I think it's very fittging that Forego's name has been attached to what is a vital fund-raising drive for the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation," Diane Pikulski, TRF's excutive director, said.

Forego was Horse of the Year in 1974, 1975, and 1976.
