Edwin J. Gregson Foundation

The Edwin J. Gregson Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit foundation in the American Thoroughbred horse racing industry based in Arcadia, California. Its stated objective is to "enhance the quality of life of California's backstretch workers and their families." Founded in 1998 by the association of California Thoroughbred Trainers (CTT) [1], in 2000 it was renamed to honor the memory of trainer and former CTT president, Edwin J. "Eddie" Gregson, who was the first to advocate the creation of the Foundation.

Among its functions, the Foundation provides College Scholarships to the children of backstretch workers.

Since July of 2001, trainer Jenine Sahadi has been President of the Foundation.
