Who Rescued Whom? Grab a Tissue Before Watching This Horse Rescue Story

Like so many Thoroughbred horses before him, Charlie’s Quest was on the brink of a fatal breakdown: During PETA’s investigation of trainer Steve Asmussen, they found that he had been drugged and forced to race for years, despite multiple injuries and fractures. His future was grim. But that all changed after PETA rescued the horse—who now goes by just “Charlie”—from his misery.

The next step was finding him a new home.

A longtime PETA supporter and friend, Alysoun Mahoney, who had recently lost her husband Greg, heard about Charlie. And the sun started shining again.

Each day brings new adventures for Alysoun and Charlie.

“My husband and I rescued almost 20 animals together during our life together. And Charlie is the first animal I’ve adopted on my own. So this means a lot to me. I like to think that I’m adopting him in memory of my own late husband, Greg.”

Charlie now has the freedom to graze on grass and run in the big pasture with his new friends, fellow rescued horses Henry and Caroline.

And unlike his days on the track, Charlie now runs only when he wants to.

What You Can Do

Please urge your U.S. representative to support the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2015 (H.R. 2641), which would increase oversight of drug use in horse racing and raise penalties for drug overuse.
