The Social Visionary Fund, a foundation established by Sophie Stenbeck, has contributed $74,000 to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation to provide veterinary care.
Calling it the “Hart to Heart Fund” in honor of her horse, “Hart,” Stenbeck designated the donation to cover costs for preventive veterinary care, medical treatment for illness and injuries, as well as emergency care, for all horses in TRF’s programs for whom vet care is not already sponsored by other donors, according to the TRF.
“I know the cost of keeping a herd of 1,000 horses healthy,” said Stenbeck, who has been a TRF donor. “I am happy to provide the TRF these funds so that good vet care is not an issue.”
