Fundraiser helps horse have a fighting Chance

In last week's editions of the Bradenton Herald, Lakewood Ranch Herald and on Bradenton.com we told you about Chance, a neglected thoroughbred in Parrish who was in need of some help, and Herald photographer Grant Jefferies brought you some fantastic photos and video of the horse and owner, Jovonnie Androy. 

Androy, owner of GoldenGael Farm, was hosting a fundraiser this past Saturday for Chance to help raise $1,700 for his dental bills. Now, she happily reports they rasied more than $2,000. Here's part of her email to the Herald, along with some photos of the event. See a full gallery here, courtesy of Vickie Pierson Crupi:
