“We continue to support Thoroughbred health and welfare grants by combining education and research with our vision in making racing safer,” comments James A. Orsini DVM.

Kathleen Anderson DVM continues, “The TERF Board of Trustees has representation from mid-Atlantic owners, breeders and veterinarians that have a singular purpose: to make racing safer through education, support, and collaboration on meaningful research ranging from basic science hypotheses to epidemiology that can be applied directly to best practices impacting the Thoroughbred racehorse before, during, and after their racing careers. We encourage other stakeholders to join us in this mission!”
