Prayers for all the horses and their owners who are affected by the Northern and Southern California fires. The editor has been staying in the Paradise/Magalia area for a few months and was out of town when the fires erupted there and does not know if the house is still standing. Many horses have been turned loose in that area and in Malibu in SoCal to flee the fires and are lost. If looking for missing persons and animals, search on Twitter with hashtags #CampFireJamesWoods and #SoCalFiresJamesWoods who, along with his 2 million followers, actor James Woods (@JamesWoods) has been updating via that network of followers with important information and connecting people with missing loved ones. The editor is displaced but safe. So many fires, and lives affected. Please pray for the people, animals, and to save our beautiful state of California. ~The Editor


Welcome to the Memorial

On the Memorial you will find thousands of fallen Thoroughbreds honored for their hard work as athletes in the extreme sport of horseracing. Throughout history, racehorses have captivated the crowds with their power and beauty on tracks around the world. Now memorialized, they represent their own life and valiant effort but also that of their brethren who slipped through unnoticed, unheralded, and soon forgotten. But, from the lowest ranks to the highest echelons they all share one thing in common, having perished in service to the Sport of Kings.
