Flame, born on May 9, 1996, is a Thoroughbred mare who was rescued by Equine Advocates along with two other Thoroughbreds at the Sugar Creek Slaughter Auction in Ohio in 2001. She was part of an undercover investigation by The Pittsburgh Channel to expose the stockpiling of Thoroughbreds by a local killer buyer who bought them at Mountaineer Park in West Virginia and then sold them each week at the Ohio meat auction. We credit Flame and the others like her as helping to educate the public about what happens to many race horses when they are no longer fast enough to compete. Flame was healthy and only five years old at the time of her rescue. Photo credit: Kara Heniges
