Olivia's Herd

The horses in Olivia's Herd are the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation's ex-racehorses that are most in need of special care or feeding because of age or other physical condition. Care for these horses is funded by gifts made to the TRF in memory of Olivia Saylor, who died January 1, 2011 in Charleston, SC.

Pony Up

Said Contessa: Im doing this because I think it is a great idea, a great program and the right thing to do. I firmly believe the industry needs to do everything it can to care for retired racehorses. I have several I care for on my own farm in upstate New York. If you dont make sure they have a proper retirement, they wind up in the wrong place.
