I’ve been asked to be a “guest celebrity” at the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation/Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center Booth at the Altech/FEI World Equestrian Games next week. Yippeeee!
While being a celebrity is not really one of my goals in life (writing good books is!), I’m extra excited to have the chance to promote my book Dream of Night at this international horse event. People from all over the world will be there. I’m hoping that signing books at the TRF booth will not only help promote Dream of Night, but will also help raise awareness about Thoroughbred adoption cause.
Each year thousands of Thoroughbreds end up in abusive situations, mainly because it costs so much and takes so much time to care for these gorgeous but sometimes temperamental creatures. The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is a national, non-profit organization that helps rescue ex-racehorses and give them a second chance at a wonderful life. The Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center (see my last post) is the flagship facility of the TRF located at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
The people at TRF/MMSC work soooooo hard to give Thoroughbreds a chance at a new life. I’m thrilled to help in whatever way I can — right now, by being a “guest celebrity” and signing books. Thanks to Susanna Thomas, Director of MMSC, for inviting me to WEG.
My book signing schedule at the TRF/MMMSC booth in the Main Pavilion at WEG:
Tuesday, September 28, 11-1
Thursday, September 30, 1-3
