The Florida Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association pledged its support to the Thoroughbred Racing Association of Oklahoma after a tornado struck Will Rogers Downs May 27–killing one horse, while injuring and displacing others. Approximately 150 horses were affected by the tornado, which caused widespread damage in northeast Oklahoma, damaged 14 barns on the backside and left the location without power and water. The aftermath also left horse trailers, travel trailers, and buildings significantly damaged and the loss of power resulted in a lack of water and the need for immediate evacuation.

“The Florida Thoroughbred Horsemen Association is dedicated to our motto ‘Horsemen helping Horsemen.’ When we were notified of the tragedy at Will Rogers Downs, our board of directors immediately pledged support to help the horsemen in Oklahoma impacted by the tornado,” said FTHA Executive Director Herb Oster. “We have mailed a check to help with the expenses incurred, including transferring displaced and injured horses.”
