I know this was posted in the San Luis Rey thread, but I thought it deserved it's own thread.

Go here and give what you can:

Donated, the images and videos on Facebook I saw were so scary. Everyone who helped the horses in that situation.....well I just cant say enough. You are heroes.

Donated also. The heroic female trainer who suffered severe burns, the others who risked their lives to help... they need our donations. :ThmbUp:

Way ahead of me PA, as I was about to post this page. :ThmbUp:

Hopefully that $350K goal gets massively surpassed.

How can you not admire a person who'd giver her life for her horses----praying for sure.

I have some friends who aren't even into horse racing who are so touched by her.......they want to send her cards.

Anyone have any idea how to do this?

My first thought would be to send to Alexis Garske at Santa Anita. She's the one in charge of the gofundme fundraiser. She would make sure that any cards or other items get to Martine (or anyone else something is addressed to).

I read that Conquest Typhoon had been found safe, also Richard's Boy and Calculator.
