You do not want to miss out on Thoroughbreds For All, a Retired Racehorse Project event taking place on Tuesday, August 4th.
The Retired Racehorse Project is teaming up with local Saratoga horsemen to present Thoroughbreds For All Saratoga!
The day will kick off at Traylor Stable in Ballston Spa. Admission is $25. Check out the line-up of events:
- 10:00 AM: A Thoroughbred Marketplace – Local ex-racehorses will be available for sale or adoption.
- 11:00 AM: TCA Thoroughbred Makeover Preview – Horses in training will complete at the $100,000 TCA Thoroughbred Makeover in Kentucky the weekend prior to the Breeders’ Cup.
- 12:00 PM: Lunch break!
- 1:00 PM: Thoroughbred Demonstrations – The demonstrations will include training horses for second careers, selecting the discipline and the market for your retired racehorse, soundness standards for second careers and what jockeys know that we should learn, too.
- 1:00 PM: Meet America’s Favorite OTTB – Laine Ashker and her off-track thoroughbred Anthony Patch will share their story and demonstrate the partnership that earned them the 2013 American Eventing Championship. Wish them good luck before they had to England to try out for the 2016 Olympic team!
After an afternoon at the stables, head on over to the The Parting Glass for the Thoroughbred Training Forum at 6:30 PM. Admission is $10 and the panel of trainers will discusses the similarities and differences between training a thoroughbred to run and training a thoroughbred to do the ten disciplines included in the TCA Thoroughbred Makeover.
We hope to see you at this exciting event on Tuesday, August 4th!
