The Thoroughbred Education and Research Foundation (TERF) is pleased to announce the awarding of a $10,000 research grant to the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation, Inc. The funding will support the work of Dr. Sue Stover at the University of California for research involving motion of the proximal sesamoid bones. The research project will examine how uneven footing, hoof conformation, shoeing, and uneven racetrack surfaces could contribute to fetlock breakdowns.
With the vision and mission of bettering the life of Thoroughbreds, TERF primarily aims to support students in pursuit of education in equine industry careers and to fund research efforts.
The Board of Directors of TERF meticulously selects grant recipients in a competitive grant making process. TERF’s grants reflect the values set forth by founders Herb and Ellen Moelis. TERF’s current Board includes Co-Chairs Kathleen Anderson DVM and James Orsini DVM, Margaret H. Duprey, Gretchen and Roy Jackson, Ellen Moelis, Wendy Moon, Anita Motion, Scott Palmer VMD, Josh Pons, Lucy Zungailia, Katelyn Jackson, and Lynn Cassimeris, Ph.D.
