TROTT USA a 501(C)(3) organization, will host its major fundraiser of the year to support its programs for retired racehorses. TROTT USA (TROTT) is a Southern California-based organization focused on retraining and finding new homes for racehorses that have been retired from the track.
Benefit to be held at the Historic Derby Restaurant from 5:30-8:30 pm. Tax-deductible tickets are $50 per person and include food prepared by the chefs of the Derby, wines and specialty cocktails featured at the no host bar, and live music by Liza G. Fly, known for her song and video, ‘Zenyatta’ produced by Jerry Moss.
After guests enjoy an intimate cocktail party with the celebs, Gary Stevens will emcee the lively Celebrity Q&A, as they share their racing memories, and stories. This is a great opportunity to share an evening with the most famous celebrities in the racing world, while raising funds to help the retiring horses.
Capping off the evening will be a live auction of collectible memorabilia, including stallion halters, art, and other exciting collectibles.
TROTT is an alternative for horse rescue, which often leads to mental trauma or even death, due to the lack of a formal program for after-market use of racehorses. The organization was founded in 2010 by Bonnie Adams, to be a non-profit that would operate with the highest ethics and integrity, as a resource to the racing industry. Inspired by her passion for horses and the positive presence of ex-racehorses in the sport horse industry, Bonnie and other dedicated volunteers decided to focus on the retraining of racehorses in order to place them in suitable homes. By partnering with first-class professional training facilities, TROTT is limited only by funding. TROTT strives to be fully funded so that every horse offered to the organization after its racing career has ended may be accepted.
