TRF Alum 'Batman' Finds a Forever Home

This was the start of a new life for Batman. A son of Turkoman, Babe's Mantel fashioned a record of 3-1-6 from 24 starts and earned little more than $40,000. Perhaps his most noteworthy race was on November 10, 1992 where he led early but finished seventh at Churchill Downs.

Tarrant is making a $100,000 donation to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) in a challenge grant, which encourages matching donations.
