Entitled “The Majesty of The Great Race Place,” the exhibit will include plain air pieces created by CAC artists who visited Santa Anita during this year’s Spring Meet. The exhibit will be on public display through Sunday, Oct. 16 and all items will be available for purchase, with 20 percent of the proceeds allocated to CARMA-sponsored Thoroughbred aftercare initiatives.
The exhibit will then shift locales as Santa Anita will host a special reception in the elegant Chandelier Room throughout the racing day on Saturday, Oct. 22. Those works of art that have not been sold by Oct. 16 will be available for purchase to attendees on Oct. 22.
Fans may pre-purchase tickets to the reception on Oct. 22 for $75 each online at santaanita.com/events.

Info on CARMA – California Retirement Management Account (CARMA), a charitable 501(c)(3) organization that was created to raise money for retired Thoroughbreds who raced in state and the aftercare nonprofit which care for them once they cross the finish line for the last time. Through our Placement Program, we have helped more than 100 race horses transition off the track and find homes through our aftercare partners.
The Placement Program has been developed to act as a liaison between horsemen and CARMA Aftercare Partners (non-profit benefactors of CARMA grant funds). The primary focus of the program is to facilitate the transition of horses from the racetrack to the aftercare organization that can best place that horse into its second career. Horse care and safety are paramount to CARMA and the program encourages the racing industry to participate in the care and protection of its equine athletes.
