About the TRF Summer Farm

Saratoga is the summer place to be, and again this year the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) is hosting two of their retired Thoroughbred racehorses to reside at the TRF Saratoga Summer Farm for the 2021 racing season. These equine “Ambassadors” represent the organization’s herd of 500 former racehorses to whom the TRF provides lifelong sanctuary through the network of farms located across the United States. The Thoroughbreds’ presence in Saratoga will introduce and reinforce the TRF organization and mission to the racing community, racing fans and the general public. Their “summer job” is to raise awareness of the critical need and importance of Thoroughbred aftercare. We hope you’ll come hear their stories!

This summer the TRF is pleased to partner with our gracious hosts at Bloomfield Farm. Bloomfield Farm is a beautiful and busy polo barn, where our TRF horses will spend their summer in Saratoga. Our 2021 TRF Herd Ambassadors have travelled from the TRF Second Chances Program at Wallkill Correctional Facility (Wallkill, NY) to the Saratoga Summer Farm.

Come meet Brickbat and My Teddy Bear and learn about their racing careers and their second careers as teachers at Wallkill. Guests will have the chance to pet the horses, hear their stories and learn about Thoroughbred Aftercare in the beautiful barn at Bloomfield Farm (no treats, please). The Summer Farm provides us a perfect opportunity for new friends and longtime supporters of the TRF to visit the horses throughout the summer racing season.
