“We are very pleased to arrange this significant gift from an anonymous donor to wounded heroes who engage in combat in far away lands to protect our freedom at home,” said Brown. ”An additional stakes race, the $35,000 Wounded Warrior Mile, is set for closing night December 29.
“The one-mile race on the turf will be run for Texas-bred horses and helps close out the 2012 live racing season,” Brown added. “This has been a good year for Retama Park, the horsemen who race here and our fans. We hope that in some modest way we can help give back to the military community.”
