Grants to California nonprofit organizations to promote the well-being of Thoroughbred horses after they have been retired from their racing careers. Funding is intended to assist farms and facilities with basic needs and to support programs that place retired horses in homes and second careers. Funds are earmarked for horses that have raced at participating track facilities in California.

CARMA provides support for hay and feed, health and veterinary costs, general farm upkeep and more. CARMA also funds capital improvement projects, and education and awareness initiatives on a case-by-case basis.
