(Edited press release)
The National Thoroughbred Racing Association Safety and Integrity Alliance April 23 announced that longtime NTRA Advantage partner and official supplier Hallway Feeds has donated 6,000 pounds of feed to aid the 170 horses suffering from malnourishment at Center Brook Farm near Climax, N.Y.
The feed donation by the Lexington-based company, as well as a recent donation of equine health care products from Alliance partner Pfizer Animal Health, came following emergency requests from the Columbia-Greene Humane Society, which is currently caring for the horses.
“We commend Hallway Feeds for its swift, compassionate response to an emergency situation in which a large number of malnourished horses must be brought back to health as rapidly as possible,” said NTRA President and CEO Alex Waldrop. “The Columbia-Greene Humane Society has done an admirable job caring for these unfortunate animals and we thank them, Hallway, and Pfizer for putting the interests of the horse first.”
