While racing season may soon come to an end, Mayor Joanne Yepsen has announced that Spa City will continue to increase awareness for retired thoroughbreds.
Mayor Yepsen announced that August will be Racehorse Retirement Month in Saratoga Springs with events in the fall that will also carry the theme. She told the Saratogian, “Saratoga Springs is proud to be a racing community, and grateful to the thoroughbreds and standardbreds that enhance our quality of life. The least we can do for these horses that work so hard for us is embrace the cause of aftercare. The city is honored to lead this charge.”
