Old Friends & New Friends Supporting Thoroughbred aftercare
July 31, 2023
Old Friends and New Friends: An Old Friends at Cabin Creek and Racing for Home, Inc. fundraiser
Join us on July 31
This year in Saratoga, Old Friends at Cabin Creek and Racing for Home, Inc. are joining forces for the horses! Come out and enjoy delicious food and drinks at Nove Italian Restaurant and help support two organizations working to give our Thoroughbred ex-racehorses a new chapter after their racing days are done.
Our Thoroughbred industry honoree will be trainer Christophe Clement, who has been one of the leading trainers in the United State for over twenty-five years. He has won more than 2,000 races and has a reputation for his honest and hands-on approach, personally training each of the horses in his care. Throughout his career, he has been a big supporter of aftercare and always makes sure to find a new home for any of his retired trainees.
About Old Friends at Cabin Creek: Old Friends at Cabin Creek, the Bobby Frankel Division, is Saratoga county's only thoroughbred retirement farm and one of the few that will take thoroughbred stallions. Our purpose is to provide dignified retirement for all racehorses, both known and unknown. Completely staffed by volunteers and run entirely on donations, our goal is to provide a natural, nurturing forever home to retired race horses, and offer the public an up-close and personal experience with our thoroughbred horses. We are open to the public year round with many special events during track season. Old Friends at Cabin Creek is accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
About Racing for Home, Inc.: Racing For Home was founded in 2010 by Acacia Courtney Clement and Sherrie Courtney. The mission is to help transition retired racehorses, one Thoroughbred at a time, for a second career. This includes helping to network other Off-Track Thoroughbreds (OTTB’s) and connect them with prospective homes off the track. Others, we take in to our program to rehabilitate and retrain, all of which get considerable let down time to acclimate to life off the track. Based in Connecticut, Racing for Home is accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and exists because of hard working volunteers and generous donations.
Thank you for your support! We can't wait to see you on July 31!
