Joe Muscara Jr. believes in giving back to the grass roots of the horse industry.  For a 2nd year, Joe has donated a Mr. Big breeding raising funds for Equine Guelph’s education programs.  These are the same programs that have helped Joe evaluate what works and what does not, on his successful journey into the Horse Racing Hall of Fame.


Joe comments on his recent experience seeing Equine Guelph’s introductory pathway to equine education, "I was fortunate to have spent a couple of hours at EquiMania! at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky. I saw hundreds of kids come through and watched their eyes get bigger! They love horses and learning about horses. Equine Guelph does a wonderful job giving children a chance to enjoy horses and all that they can do and I am glad that we could help out in some way."


Congratulations to Cliff & Kathy Coonfer in Olds, Alberta who won the breeding to Mr. Big with a winning bid of $5,700 in the stallion auction run by The Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society.  OSAS who raises money to assist in the placement of retired Standardbreds in the province, kindly included the breeding in their auction.  In return Equine Guelph has provided an online course to be auctioned off at an upcoming OSAS golf tournament, continuing the sow the seeds of lifelong learning.
