D.A., formerly “Pass the Pie,” is an unraced Registered Thoroughbred gelding born on March 14, 2004. He was one of three emaciated Thoroughbreds rescued from a breeding farm in 2007 by Equine Advocates. All three horses were in such poor condition that they had to be treated at an equine hospital for more than 30 days. The story of their rescue was featured in an article by New York Times reporter Joe Drape in April of 2009. The article exposed wide-scale abuse and neglect. The breeder was later convicted and served time in jail. Today, D.A. is healthy and happily spends his days in the company of other rescued Thoroughbreds in a part of the sanctuary we call “The Heartbreakers.”

D.A. is proudly sponsored by supporters from Denver, Colorado; Bellrose, New York and Charleston, South Carolina.
