Pastures of Point Lookout


The Happy Herd at Pastures of Point Lookout

About the Farm

“To honor my late wife, Phyllis Mills Wyeth and her Belmont Stakes winner Union Rags, I am transforming our farm into a retirement sanctuary for racehorses,” Jamie Wyeth explained. “I view Pastures of Point Lookout as a lasting reminder of the contributions to the world of horse racing by Phyllis and her champion, Union Rags.”

Anita Motion serves as the Executive Director of Pastures of Point Lookout. She implements the organization’s guidelines and policies for equine care for the aging herd as well as providing oversight and hands-on management for the full-time farm staff who will care for the horses and maintain the 250-acre farm where they reside. Most recently the home of Belmont winning Union Rags (2012), the farm used by PPL has been modified to support the “pasture lifestyle” to which the TRF horses have become accustomed over their many years at the TRF Second Chances Program at Wallkill.

Adopt One, Save Two!

Most of the horses at TRF sustained career-ending injuries on the racetrack. While they are healthy and happy charging around the fields with their pasture-mates, they are not able to withstand the rigors of steady riding.  At the TRF, all horses are given permanent, dignified retirement for the rest of their lives; and that is where YOU come in.
