The We Are Here Initiative (WAHI), formed last year to assist Thoroughbreds retired from racing due to the financial strain of sustained track closures from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, has dispersed its resources. WAHI helped move several horses from tracks in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, and Louisiana to aftercare organizations in addition to assisting owners and trainers who were affected by the pandemic, but the expected surge of Thoroughbreds needing immediate new homes was lower than anticipated.
The remaining funds donated to WAHI are being dispersed to the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation, the Secretariat Center, the Thoroughbred Charities of America, and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
