Cream Ridge, NJ - 4/6/2020 - Nearly 32 years of helping thousands of Standardbreds, and shining under numerous awards from the Racing Commissioners International, the American Associations of Equine Practitioners, the Harness Tracks of America and many others, the harness racing of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) are facing serious trouble during this Covid virus pandemic.
 
Paula Campbell and Judy Bokman have worked tirelessly to keep this mission going, but potential adopters are holding off, horses scheduled for homes are on hold, SRF is unable to continue to feed and care for 382 horses with its social fundraisers cancelled, they need help now.
 
There have not been any government or industry grants available to assist these horses, 94% of the success of the mission is attributed to the generosity of individuals.
 
The many facilities SRF uses to board these horses are making some concessions to help get through this.
 
The monthly cost for feed and care is now down to $76,800 for the 382 horses.
 
SRF is pleading for help for them.
 
Tax-deductible donations are the only way to save these horses.
 
Donations can be made through SRF's website at https://www.adoptahorse.org/donate, by mail to SRF PO Box 312, Millstone Twp., NJ 08535, (SRF requests a message of a gift in the mail in order to arrange for care) or by telephoning 609 738 3255.
 
There is very limited staff time, messages will be returned as quickly as possible.

Further Information
 
For nearly every Standardbred racehorse, when injured or no longer competitive, they are sold off the track to dealers in rural communities. They are then resold either for the price of meat in Canada and Mexico, or as work horses to plow fields, haul heavy logs, clear land, and for street transportation. Sadly, the care of many of them is not to humane standards. When in their teens these horses are usually then "turned over for fresh ones" and sold for slaughter. SRF diverted thousands of these trotters and pacers to safety, rehabilitation, then to loving homes; some have gone back to owners for a safe retirement.
 
Every animal is at the mercy of the care it is in, for some, that is a wonderful place to be, but that is not the case for all. SRF, being the model program, the oldest, most productive organization of its kind remains the guardian for its horses, even when adopted, so no horse is at risk again.
 
A few SRF has helped that were in the slaughter pipeline:
  • UPFRONT HOOSIER BOY -  $802,426 
  • SWINGIN GLORY - $817,082  
  • THINK GOLD -  $699,994
