TRF Summer BBQ at the Barn
Mark your calendars! One of the most anticipated events of the summer, the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation's Barbeque at the Barn will be held at the beautiful Saratoga Winery on Tuesday, August 23 from 5:00-9:00 p.m. Early Bird tickets now on sale - prices increase on August 1st.
The TRF, which will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2023, provides a sanctuary home for former racehorses at its Second Chances farms in correctional facilities in New York, Kentucky, Florida, California, Maryland, Illinois and South Carolina. There student/inmates learn vocational skills in equine care and stable management. Through their daily interaction with the horses, the student/inmates also learn about trust, mutual respect, responsibility and teamwork as they bond with the horses. The TRF's family-friendly BBQ at the Barn will feature terrific food, silent auction, raffle, live music and even interaction with horses, as well as interaction with racing personalities. All proceeds will go to the TRF, a 501 (c) (3) organization.
