SARATOGA SPRINGS - In celebrating 22 years of equine rescue work and 17 years of holding its biggest event of the year in Saratoga, Equine Advocates will be honoring West Point Thoroughbred’s CEO and founder, Terry Finley with the Safe Home Equine Protection Award at the Canfield Casino on August 2. He will be joined by Purple Haze Stable’s Wanda Polisseni who will receive the Ellen and Herbert Moelis Equine Savior Award. Each of these outstanding individuals are being recognized for making major contributions in the area of equine protection. Finley, who is a resident of Saratoga Springs, came to the rescue of Thoroughbreds stranded in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria when he helped arrange for a plane to deliver much-needed food and supplies. He is opposed to horse slaughter and is actively involved with Thoroughbred Aftercare and equine-related charities. Terry sits on the boards of the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association and the Thoroughbred Charities of America.
