Racing Fever Hits Hard!

Racing fever has taken over here in San Diego and The Seany Foundation is learning the ropes at the race track.  Members of Team Seany met today with Dyan Abrams to watch Flashover pull ahead in the final stretch to take first place!

After race 3, we headed to the barn to pay a visit to one of our favorite horses: Seany’s Story.  He is young, healthy, and beautiful.  While enjoying all of the attention, he repeatedly attempted to stick his nose down Tara’s blouse!  Yes, we can all agree that Sean would be proud.  Come see Seany’s Story race in a couple more weeks at the Del Mar Racetrack!

Opening Day at the Races

Team Seany is dressing up for opening day at the races today at the Del Mar Racetrack.  We’re trying to learn the ropes of horse racing now that The Seany Foundation has some horses of its own that will soon be running. We’ll also be sure to see one of our directors and top-givers, Jeffrey Strauss (a big race aficionado), at the track.

At last year’s Celebration gala at Moores UCSD Cancer Center, Dyan and Barry Abrams announced a surprise donation to The Seany Foundation.  Mr. Abrams originally met Mitch Robins at the cementery on one of the many afternoons that Mitch spends visiting a small, personal garden alongside the stone etched with Sean’s name.  After having visited the website and having been touched by Sean’s story and Sean’s own words on his CarePages, Mr. Abrams decided to make a contribution that would continue to give back over the years.

The Abrams bought two new thoroughbred horses, named them “Seany’s Story” and “Seany’s Courage”, and promised 25% of all winnings to The Seany Foundation.  Their generosity moved the crowd and was certainly a wonderful and welcome surprise for the Foundation.

Thank you, Dyan and Barry! We hope you enjoy this racing season!  We’ll look forward to seeing you at the track.
