Proceeds benefited New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program and Retired Racehorse Training Project Lexington, KY- Friday night’s Thoroughbreds For All nearly doubled in size from last year’s event with over 500 attending from 28 states while raising over $12,000 for two worthy aftercare charities. The majority of the audience was made up of equestrians in town for the Rolex Three Day Event who wanted to learn more about retired Thoroughbred racehorses. The racing industry was well represented as the event was sponsored by AmWest Entertainment, Gulfstream After Care, and Three Chimneys Farm. The beneficiaries, New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program and the Retired Racehorse Training Program, partnered to host the educational event at the New Vocations Lexington facility. The evening consisted of dinner followed by a special presentation from The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program to recognize each of the 2013 Rolex riders competing on registered Thoroughbreds with a gift. Each Rolex rider shared their thoughts and most their preference for using retired racehorses for eventing. “The Thoroughbred Incentive Program recognizes and rewards the versatility of the Thoroughbred through sponsorship of Thoroughbred classes and awards at horse shows and events across the United States and Canada,” said Kristin Leshney , legal associate for The Jockey Club “The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is the epitome of equine athleticism, and it was an honor to be able to recognize so many Thoroughbreds competing at this level.” The remainder of the evening consisted of four sessions focused on how to choose and work with newly retired racehorses.
