I didn't know this about Dallas Keen (and wife).

Incidentally, one of Rachel Alexandra's halters, signed by Asmussen and Rachel Alexandra's jockey Calvin Borel, is encased in a handsome shadow box on display at Fair Grounds and subject to bids during a silent auction that ends March 20. The two top bidders at the silent auction will be invited to continue to bid publicly at the Horsemen's Dinner during the evening of March 26, Fair Grounds Oaks Day.
Profits from the auction will go toward a barn-raising fundraiser for the Remember Me Racehorse Rescue facility operated by Donna and Dallas Keen. Remember Me Rescue placed 36 retired race horses in new homes in 2009, some of which were rescued from slaughter by the couple, but new horses on coming in constantly.
"We have to build a new barn at our facility because I refuse to stop taking in new horses," Donna Keen said.
