Thoroughbred Charities of America Appoints Moran

Elizabeth Moran, owner of racing and breeding operation Brushwood Stable, joins Thoroughbred Charities of America Board of Directors.

Feb. 16, 2005 — Thoroughbred Charities of America, a fund-raising organization that distributes grants to Thoroughbred rescue, retirement, research, education, backstretch and handicap riding programs, recently announced the appointment of Betty Moran to its Board of Directors. Moran owns Brushwood Stable, a racing and breeding operation.

“If ever a definition of a philanthropist is needed, just describe Betty Moran”, says Herb Moelis, President and Founder of TCA. “Here is a woman who is truly a philanthropist in heart and action. All one needs to do is ask and Betty steps forward. We are honored to have her on the Board of Directors of Thoroughbred Charities of America.”

Brushwood Stable in Malvern, Penn., has an outstanding reputation among the nation’s premier equine auction buyers and sellers. Primarily a thoroughbred racing and breeding operation, Brushwood maintains a stable of 25 Thoroughbreds with various trainers throughout the country.

Moran’s dedication to philanthropy is matched by her personal accomplishments of championship squash, raising 6 children, and fox-hunting. Most notable in Brushwood Stable’s accomplishments is Crème Fraiche. In 1985 he became the first and is still the only gelding to win the third jewel of racing’s Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes. Crème Fraiche’s time of 2:27 was the second fastest since Secretariat’s 2:24 in 1973.
