Let me give you a list of the 20 horses he has place through Remember Me Rescue if you believe that. Please google Rich Papiese before you make such accusasions. He turns these horses out at his own farm until they are ready to go to placement organizations and then funds them while they are their. He is the exception to the rule for sure.
My name is Donna Keen, Remember Me Rescue. I have never met the owner of Midwest TB personally. But let me tell you what I do know. He is the only owner I know that does not allow ANY of his horses to be placed by trainers. Every horse after they retire goes to his personal farm in Florida for let down or rehab time before he places them with a rescue/placement organization. He not only donates the horses but gives enough money with each horse to pay for their expenses while they are being retrained. I have nothing but respect for this organization. They will not run a horse if he is unfit for racing, and when a horse is ready he will be retired. Just becuase a horse has fell off form does not mean he is unhappy with his track life or unsound. Please do a little research on Midwest and Rich Papiese, you will find he is a generous man who loves horses and horse racing. I can tell you about all of the things he has done for RMR and we have never even met him.
Skippy Due has been retired by Beyond The Roses and Remember Me Rescue. So happy for this old veteran!
Thank you everyone for supporting all the wonderful retirement programs that give our horses options after racing!
