STEPHANIE BRENNAN ELECTED TO THOROUGHBRED RETIREMENT FOUNDATION BOARD
Saratoga Springs, NY – The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is pleased to announce the election of Stephanie Brennan to the organization’s Board of Directors. The TRF board provides leadership for carrying out the Foundation’s mission to provide sanctuary for retired racehorses no longer able to compete on the racetrack and to save them from possible neglect, abuse and slaughter.
“Once again the TRF has hit a home run by adding Stephanie to the Board,” said Patrick Mackay, President and Chairman of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. “We welcome and look forward with great enthusiasm to her sharing her firsthand knowledge and expertise in Thoroughbred aftercare for the betterment of our herd.”
Stephanie Brennan is based out of Ocala, Florida and is the Director of Sales and Marketing for Niall Brennan Stables and in 2009 founded Final Furlong, LLC, a Thoroughbred retirement initiative solely for graduates of Niall Brennan Stables and through that organization has rehomed nearly 200 off-the-track Thoroughbreds.
“I am excited to be a part of the TRF,” said Brennan. “As a strong supporter of aftercare, I am particularly interested in the liaison between the TRF and the correctional systems. It creates a world of opportunities for both equines and inmates to have hope for a better future.”
About TRF: Founded in 1983, the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation is a national organization devoted to saving Thoroughbred horses no longer able to compete at the racetrack from possible neglect, abuse, and slaughter. As the oldest Thoroughbred rescue in the country, the TRF provides lifelong sanctuary to retired Thoroughbreds throughout their lifetime.
Best known for its pioneering TRF Second Chances program, the organization provides incarcerated individuals with life-changing vocational training through its accredited equine care and stable management program.
