Rescued Thoroughbreds Available for Adoption

October 9, 2006. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation will have an open house Oct. 21 at the Saratoga Farms Equine Center in Saratoga Springs to showcase recently rescued ex-racehorses who are available for adoption.

The event will take place from 12 to 3 to p.m.

Information about Thoroughbred adoption, the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, which is based in Saratoga, and owning, riding, and caring for an ex-racehorse will be available. Representatives from the organization will be there to answer questions and give demonstrations. The event will also raise awareness about the number of sound and talented former racehorses available for adoption to good homes.

Most of the horses featured at this event were rescued from the slaughterhouse buyers at the New Holland Auction in Pennsylvania and rehabilitated by the TRF. They have all been started under saddle and the level of training and adoption rate vary accordingly. The range is between $600 and $2400. Volunteers from Thoroughbred racing, Anna Hollander, Trish McLaughlin and Sharon Castro, among others, have been donating their time and services to care for and re-train the horses up for adoption.

The Saratoga Farms Equine Center includes upscale homes and an equine facility for the residents. A model home will be available for touring.. Saratoga Farms Equine Center is located on Saratoga Farm Road, off of the Nelson Avenue extension.

For more information on this event or the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, please call the TRF at 518-226-0028.

Founded in 1982, the TRF is the nation's oldest and largest Thoroughbred horse rescue group. The non-profit organization provides lifetime retirement for hundreds of Thoroughbreds at farms and satellite facilities across the nation and adopts out hundreds of others after retraining them for second careers. The TRF is wholly dependent on public support.

The TRF is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization which relies entirely on charitable donations to fund its various rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and retirement programs. All contributions are tax deductible. For more information and directions, contact the TRF at 518-226-0028 or on the web at http://www.trfinc.org.
