“THOROUGHBRED RACEHORSES & THOROUGHBRED PLACEMENT RESOURCES IN MARYLAND”
A lecture presented by Marietta House Museum & Prince George’s County Historical Society
Tuesday, May 24th at 7pm
Please join Kimberly Godwin Clark on Tuesday, May 24th at 7pm. at Marietta House Museum, for a lecture and discussion of “Thoroughbred Racehorses & Thoroughbred Placement Resources”
Kimberly Godwin Clark is the Founder and Executive Director of Thoroughbred Placement Resources, Inc., a charity that helps retired Thoroughbred racehorses find new lives when their careers end.
Ms. Clark rode and trained racehorses for 25 years before changing her focus to providing them a better retirement. Most recently TPR has launched Hero Horses Program which involves America’s Active Service men and woman, Veterans, and Wounded Warriors in the work TPR does to help these horses.
Supreme Court Justice, Gabriel Duvall was an avid horseman and had many Thoroughbred horses throughout his lifetime–he even had one of his horses buried next to him! Horseracing has drawn much interest in Maryland from early in the 18th century to the present.
Please call 301-464-5291 for more information. We look forward to seeing you.
