HH Tracy, a 29 year old daughter of Distant Thunder
"She must have a story to tell," said Judy Bokman, the Executive Director of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) when speaking of HH Tracy, a 29 year old daughter of Distant Thunder. Not much of a harness racing horse, but Tracy was somewhere for 28 years. She might have been a workhorse, used for transportation, or was a beloved a pet, and today she stands tagged for slaughter in Pennsylvania waiting for her turn to ship to the Canadian slaughterhouse.
SRF is pleading for a place for her to live out her last few years, maybe only months. Her very sad eyes and grey face are very touching. Her fees will be paid to the kill buyer if someone would give her a place to live, a last opportunity before she passes peacefully.
HH Tracy was foaled in 1987 in Allentown, NJ. With hopes of making it to the Winner's Circle, either she didn't have the speed or desire to race around an oval, or perhaps she had an injury. What happened is anyone's guess. Some may feel it is time for her to be put at rest, but a long and difficult trip crammed in a packed livestock trailer from Pennsylvania to Canada can take up to two days. At 29 years old, or at any age this is grueling.
