D.A., is an unraced chestnut Thoroughbred gelding whose name had been “Pass the Pie.” He was born on March 14, 2004 and was one of three emaciated Thoroughbreds rescued by Equine Advocates at a NY breeding farm in 2007. All three horses were all in such poor condition that they had to be treated at an equine hospital for 31 days. Luckily, they all survived. The story of their rescue was featured in an article in the New York Times in April of 2009 when writer Joe Drape exposed wide-scale abuse and neglect by that same breeder for which he was later convicted and served time in jail. Today, D.A. is a beautiful and very healthy horse and spends his days in the company of four other rescued Thoroughbreds, Joey, Mikey, Monty and Arnold in a part of the sanctuary we call “After The Finish Line.” Photo credit: Tony George
