Cream Ridge, NJ - 9/16/19 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation's, (SRF) horses had a presence at the Trail to Zero ride in Manhattan on Saturday, Sept. 15th, 2019. They participated in the the effort to raise awareness of suicide among our veteran service men and women. The ride was 20 miles long and represented the number of veterans who take their own lives each day.
 
The Newark, NJ Mounted Unit has fourteen SRF horses serving, and numerous cities across the country are staffed with this "Brainiac Breed" from SRF, several prison patrol units, as well as Sheriff Departments, including Texas. NYC still has just one. Coincidentally he was owned by Jeff Gural of the Meadowlands, and Monica Bencal.
 
With more than 4,000 adoptions, SRF feels it can bring together enough adopters to participate in 2020 to support this effort to help our country's veterans.
 
"I feel very strongly about supporting this," one adopter expressed. "Next year I will help coordinate it, and appreciate the help of any other adopters to make it happen." SRF will keep a list of those interested in participating, and planning for this very worthwhile cause, and will contact all in 2020; email your interest to SRFFundraising@gmail.com.
 
Our thanks to Robbie Siegleman for recognizing SRF's horses and photographing them.
 
From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation
