Parx Donates $50,000 to Turning For Home
Turning For Home, the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association’s racehorse retirement program at Parx Racing, was the recipient of a $50,000 donation from the racetrack on August 21. The presentation was made during the unveiling of sculptor Nic Fiddian-Green’s “Horse At Water,“ which was placed in front of the Parx Casino. The statue is the first of the sculptor’s in the United States, although an equine statue of his can be seen at the equestrian park from the 2012 Olympics in London.

Turning For Home, a 501 c 3 nonprofit program, opened in May 2008 and has been responsible for the safe retirement of nearly 800 noncompetitive or injured Thoroughbreds from the Bensalem, PA track.
