Retired Racehorse, Lights On Broadway, 2001 Tx-HOTY

A couple of years ago a group of people that call themselves the Fans of Barbaro, Alex Brown, and a man named Greg Sanders helped save Lights On Broadway from slaughter. Over the past 2 years I have been asked many times over how Lights is doing and where he is now. I thought I would update all of you on his status.

Lights On Broadway is calling Remember Me Racehorse Rescue home. He is one of two permanent residents along with 28 year old Yeah Me Do. He is safe, happy, and is the official spokeshorse for our organization. We still ride Lights around the farm and hope to have a fundraiser or two for him this year where he will be the guest of honor.

I have made Lights his own webpage on the RMR site. I posted new photos of him at the farm riding and even jumping without a bridle. He is truly on the the coolest horses I have ever met. If you can teach a racehorse to ride with out a bridle you can teach them anything!

Everyone has heard about the terrible drought in the south. We usually keep 6-10 horses at any given time in the RMR program. The cost of taking care of them is constantly increasing.

Please keep Remember Me Rescue in your thoughts and prayers. There is a paypal button on Lights page if you would like to make a donation towards his care or to help us with the other horses in our program.

Remember Me Rescue placed over 80 horses in the last two years. We are funded totally from donations from horse lovers and by adoption fees we charge when a horse is placed with a new family. We appreciate your support. Now go ride your horse! (and if you don't have one, adopt!)

Blue the Pony, aka the carrott thief

Volunteer Susan made her usually Monday morning visit to Remember Me Rescue. I had to share this with all of our followers.

Hi Donna,

Well, thanks to Blue, Yammi was able to eat carrots today for the first time! Blue stuck his head down into the grooming carry-all where my bag of carrots was, picked up the bag and slowly started to walk away. As I came after him to retrieve the bag, he being no dummy, stepped into a trot and made his way across the pasture. Now I know Blue can MOVE when he puts his mind to it!

Fortunately, the carrots dribbled out of the bag as he trotted along, and as soon as the bag was empty, which didn't take long, Blue stopped, turned around, and walked back to me. He is one smart horse!

I retrieved all the carrots and several of them were crushed into little bits from when Blue bit the bag to pick it up. I fed those bits to Yammi and he was able to eat them! He's not able to eat a regular small chunk of carrot; I guess b/c he has teeth problems?? Anyway, he was able to mash up every little smushed bit of carrot I fed him today.

All the Rescue guys were groomed--Blue, Yammi, Hajii, Teddie, Belfast, and Mack. I really scrubbed Hajii and Yammi with the curry to get a lot of the loose, shedding hair off them, and I was able to get all the mats off of Hajii. I also trimmed Hajii's and Yammi's manes a little...they look ready for the track again!I don't know if you guys have been unable to work on Teddie's mane and tail, but I've told you I CANNOT get him to let me brush them. Today, after probably 10-15 minutes of walking him down, cooing, and being persistent, I was finally able to brush him!

And I LOVE Belfast!! Is he as sweet as he seems?? He lay his face right against mine and just stayed there. And he doesn't mind his ears being handled. And he is great when cleaning his hooves. And he's so beautiful! I looked up his race record, and he raced against one of Larry Jones' horses once, and Robby Albarado has ridden him!
And that paint baby is a doll! I watched her race around the stall, back and forth, back and forth, like she had just discovered the greatest thing!

If it's okay with you, I'd like to bring some paper, paints and brushes out next Monday and see if I can get Yammi and Hajii to create some Moneighs. Gwen plans to come next Monday, so she can help me. I have the directions from Mary Simons on what to use/what to do/ etc. Maybe if they turn out, you could add them to the raffle for the fundraiser. Let me know.

First Annual "Trail Ride for the Racehorse"

Remember Me Racehorse Rescue is holding its First Annual "Trail Ride for the Racehorse" on April 9th at Loyd Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Proceeds from the trail ride and cookout will used to build a barn for the injured and long term rehabilitation horses in the Remember Me Rescue Program. Everyone knows just how brutal this winter has been and we are in need of a new barn to help protect the horses in the RMR program from the elements.

Everyone is welcome. If you don't ride come to the cookout! Thoroughbred Trainer Dallas Keen will be in charge of the grill. Plates for the cookout will be $5/ person, kids under 10 are free. There is no charge to ride in the trail ride and we will have free t-shirts for the trail riders.

We will also hold bridleless riding demonstration and hold a question and answer seminar to answer questions about training and 'retraining' your rescued horses.


Consider being a trail ride sponsor. Basic Sponsorship is $250, Premium Sponsorship is $1000.

We will also hold a raffle after the trail ride. Tickets are $1 and we will have lots of neat stuff. All proceeds go to Remember Me Racehorse Rescue. You may purchase raffle tickets the day of the ride or in advance. No need to be present to win but may have to pay shipping for large items.

We still need a few volunteers. If you are interested we would love to have you join us for our fundraiser!!
