Mike Smith is an advocate and partner with TROTT (Training Racehorses Off The Track). Here is a little bit of information about them from the official website:
TROTT was launched in January 2010. After volunteering for 2 years with several thoroughbred rescue groups in Southern California, Bonnie met Beryl, and together they decided to form a non-profit that would operate with the highest ethics and integrity, as a resource to the racing industry.
Inspired by their passion for horses, and the positive presence of former racehorses in the sport horse industry, Bonnie and Beryl decided to focus on the retraining of racehorses in addition to re-homing. By partnering with first class professional training facilities, TROTT is not limited by space or trainers–only by funds.
TROTT strives to be fully funded so that every horse offered to us may be accepted. TROTT is extremely grateful for every volunteer, sponsor, and supporter who makes our mission possible.
