Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation Charity Profile
The Grayson Foundation was named in honor of Admiral Cary Grayson, best known as the personal physician to President Woodrow Wilson but also owner of Blue Ridge Farm in Virginia and one of the first to support equine research prior to his death in 1938.
From the beginning, the foundationís aim was to support research at existing institutions rather than carry out the research itself. Over nearly half a century, The Grayson Foundation operated as a separate entity, fulfilling the purposes of its founders despite constant limitations on available funding.
For much of its history, the foundation sought to disperse $100,000 annually in grants to specific research projects. Its success in this goal resulted in support for a number of projects which represented steps forward, among them being development of vaccines against Equine Viral Arteritis and herpesvirus infections, determining causes of viral abortions leading to development of the most effective vaccine yet developed, and influencing estrous cycles in mares to increase fertility.
