LOPE would like to thank Kate Tweedy (author of Secretariat’s Meadow) and Macleod Pharmaceuticals for their support during the AAEP Annual Convention. Ms. Tweedy (daughter of Secretariat’s owner, Penny Chenery) had a hugely popular book signing at the convention — and she donated a generous share of the proceeds to LOPE. Macleod Pharmaceuticals sponsored the book event and also gave LOPE space at their booth. LOPE sold out of its inventory of Beyond the Homestretch at the event too! Thanks to Ms. Tweedy and Macleod Pharmaceuticals, nearly $1800 was raised for the LOPE horses (and their winter hay fund). We appreciate their support tremendously (as well as the help of the LOPE volunteers at the event: Suzanne, Judy, Jenn, Gina and Loretta).
