Horse named after Ky. teen getting its own Breyer model
(WKYT) - A horse named for a Madison County teenager is now getting its own Breyer model.
That model is in the likeness of Cody’s Wish, a horse named after Cody Dorman.
Dorman is a Richmond teenager with a rare genetic disease.
On his ‘Make A Wish’ trip to Gainsborough Farm in 2018, he made a connection to the foal.
The horse won the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile last November.
Breyer is making a $10,000 donation to Make A Wish in Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana.
Marketing director Faith Hacker says this donation will grant a wish to one of the 400 kids in Kentucky waiting for one.
“It’ll all go back to Make A Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, which is really what inspired Cody. That’s what Cody wants to do,” Hacker said. “Cody has become an ambassador for Make A Wish, and it just was a wonderful partnership.”
The horse model will be available to ship in November.
You can buy the horses online or at any store that sells Breyer.
