“God’s Stable” Hits The Mainstream

Writer Steve Buffery has profiled Chaplain Ken Carter and the ‘Stable of Horses That God Loves’ in an extensive piece for the Toronto Sun.

It was announced last month that the owners of some of the best Standardbred in racing have come together for the 2015 racing season to implement the ‘Stable of Horses That God Loves,’ a major fundraising program for the Standardbred Racetrack Chaplaincy of Canada.

The initiative calls for participants to donate a small percentage of the purse earnings of one (or two) of their horses to the Chaplaincy via the Stable of Horses That God Loves. As the initial announcement for the endeavour explains, the program is designed as a fundraiser for the Chaplaincy, but also to provide a good news story for the sport on a continuing basis throughout the entire racing season.

The good-news story has already hit a mainstream media outlet, as Buffery’s piece delves into the ‘stable,’ Chaplain Carter, and the tireless work of the Standardbred Racetrack Chaplaincy of Canada.

The Sun article explains how the stable came to be and shines light on Chaplain Carter’s honourable work in support of the members of the racing industry.

It was announced last month that Dan Patch winner Shake It Cerry would be part of the stable for 2015, and it was announced this past weekend that top pacer Luck Be Withyou would also be part of the initiative for 2015.

A wonderful story, very inspiring.
Chaplain Ken has had so much to deal with in his personal life in the last year or two.
May God continue to bless him, his family and his ministry with those in our sport who need his help.
Is there a way we can make personal donations to the ministry?

This is just a wonderful and compelling story. Thanks to Toronto Sun writer Steve Buffery for doing such a great job putting it together and an even bigger thank you to Chaplain Ken Carter. The work of the chaplaincy committee is so vital and just reading about it magnifies the great dedication put forth by Ken and his team. I have long been a follower of the great old TV Show "The Waltons" and recall a memorable line from an episode. If I recall it went like this... "Sharing is our first duty and our greatest pleasure." The work of the Chaplaincy gives people one of the greatest gifts anyone can receive, and that is hope.
