TRF Summer Farm @Saratoga
Through a partnership with Heading for Home, the TRF is able to bring 5 retired Thoroughbreds to Saratoga for the summer. Heading for Home is a racehorse rescue and retraining facility for both Standardbred and Thoroughbred racehorses. This partnership formed as a result of a collaboration with Racehorse Aftercare Charitable Endeavors of Saratoga (R.A.C.E.). This group of racehorse aftercare organizations was launched in 2015 and promotes education and awareness on racehorse aftercare in the Saratoga area.
The five horses at the TRF Summer Farm @Saratoga are representatives of the Thoroughbred horses to whom the TRF provides lifelong sanctuary through our network of 18 farms, located in 11 states and including 7 Second Chances programs at Correctional Facilities. They look forward to meeting new friends and longtime supporters of the TRF throughout the summer meet.
These horses are proudly offered for adoption. To learn more, click here.
The farm will be open on a to be determined schedule during racing season, or by appointment with the TRF.
“We are thrilled to introduce our retired horses to the Saratoga community and to have the opportunity to elevate the conversation regarding racehorse aftercare” said TRF Director of Development and Communications Jennifer Stevens. “TRF’s national headquarters is based in Saratoga Springs, yet we rarely have a chance to have our supporters meet our herd in person. Each horse has a unique personality and a story to tell. We hope the community will visit the farm to meet them and come to appreciate and love them as we do.”
