Congratulations to Bob Donaldson of Donaldson Farms, who was the lucky winner of American Pharoah’s stud halter, courtesy of Coolmore America’s Ashford Stud! On Saturday, September 24th, 2016, Turning for Home volunteer Linda Schiavo pulled his raffle ticket out of nearly 400 tickets – all on live television. This year’s Pennsylvania Derby and Cotillion Stakes were broadcast live on Comcast SportsNet and sandwiched between the featured races was a short segment about Turning for Home, as well as the drawing.

“This is amazing,” said Donaldson when he picked up the halter on Monday. “I’ve been so excited ever since I got the phone call. I can’t believe it! My horse just raced and finished fifth, but I still feel like I won after this!”
