Millstone Township, NJ - Jan. 18, 2018 - Killean Cut Kid, now a 13 year old gelding, the son of Mach Three who earned $315,239 in his harness racing career, is ready for a home nearly six months after he was found in a Louisiana kill pen.    It was noted on Facebook, by the owner that he was deceased. Kid was helped by a volunteer group on Facebook, Save Our Standardbreds From Slaughter (SOSS), and Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF).   Kid was in very poor condition and was sent to a quarantine facility where he received medical care.   As a result of Decubitis ulcers on all four legs, believed to be the result of having bandages on for an extended period of time, he required a great deal of care.  Kid was fortunate to have kind donors, and SRF help with his care and transportation to NJ.   Today, he is ready for a loving home. Kid is in Cream Ridge, NJ with Dr. Hogan where he has been for a couple of months receiving wonderful care; she notes that he is a very sweet horse.   Kid certainly deserves a soft place to land, and with his very kind and patient temperament, this handsome guy can even take the saddle for the occasional ride.   Kid needs one more lucky charm, a home to call his own. To offer this big winner a home contact SRF at 732-446-4422, or email SRFAdoption@gmail.com.    www.AdoptaHorse.org  SRF is Different: * Is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S.  * Helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused.   * Is feeding and caring for more than 300 trotters and pacers.    * Is providing lifetime homes for more than 150 retirees and provides     lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again.         Before photos:            Standardbred Retirement Foundation | AdoptaHorse.org | Judith Bokman

Middleburg, Virginia ---- The harness racing industry was well represented by the Standardbred Retirement Foundation at this year's Christmas in Middleburg Parade, which was held on December 2nd. This year's parade had an estimated attendance of 25,000 plus spectators. While the parade is free spectators pay $20 for parking for the all day event.   Harness driver, Mark Gray, driving retired pacer, Art Simpson, on a two seat jog-cart provided by Rosecroft Raceway led the harness racing participants. Other harness racing participants included Garnett Gray, Rachel Rhodes, Michelle Graham, Susan Arrington, Janice Atwell and spectator volunteers, Nicky Oliver & Avery Kyser.   The Standardbreds were a hit with the attendees as our riders would toss tee-shirts and ride the horses close to the spectators. Some of the adults and children petted our horses during the parade.   Moira Fanning of the Hambeltonian Society provided the tee-shirts that were passed out and tossed. The coloring books, fan guides and HoofBeat magazines that were provided by the USTA were also distributed. At the end of the event we had nothing left.   The event announcer, announced the SRF website address and spoke of the SRF's most recent rescue of 39 Standardbreds.   Organized by SRF founder, Judy Bokman and myself, the Middleburg parade represents a good venue to promote harness racing to people that are not familiar with our sport.

Millstone Township, N.J., Nov. 27, 2017 - One lucky mare has made it to the safety of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF), but she has brought a surprise with her.   Tee's Mean Machine showed up from the kill pen looking like she might be pregnant, and SRF has confirmed that she is in fact in foal.

To offer help, please contact Tammy Cailliau at 732-446-4422 or via email at SRFhorsesandkids@gmail.com.   SRF is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. with over 3,000 adoptions since 1989, and is different; helping Standardbreds exclusively; helps whether, young, aged, injured, or neglected; is feeding and caring for more than 272 trotters and pacers; is home to 156 retirees under SRF's care and expense; is providing lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again.     Standardbred Retirement Foundation, 353 Sweetmans Lane, Suite 101, Millstone Twp., NJ 08535

Where would 38-39, and now 40 Standardbreds be without the community of love for these harness racing horses; every one has been saved. Some will be homed with wonderful people soon. Some will come to SRF for the care they deserve after years of pounding the track, and years of pounding the asphalt. Another update will be provided as soon as arrangements are completed to get them on to their new lives. ;The thanks for helping every one of them is difficult to express," Tammy Cailliau, SRF's Administrator, struggles to say, "It's been tough, and emotional, and our gratitude is immense." SRF is different than any other organization: - Helps Standardbreds exclusively; - Does not limit help to only adoptable horses; - Follows up for life on a semi-annual basis so no horse is ever at risk again; - Never relinquishes ownership, requiring any adopted horse in need of another home to be returned to SRF.   Standardbred Retirement Foundation | AdoptaHorse.org | Judith Bokman

Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is hosting a book-signing event for the new release, Momentous: Racing to Glory. Author Freddie Hudson will be at SRF's booth during the Harrisburg sale, at the Pa. Farm Show and Arena on Monday, November 6, 2017 from 11 am to 1 pm. There will be 100 books available for purchase with proceeds to benefit SRF, sponsored by Allerage Farms and Jeff & Paula Gural.   Momentous: Racing to Glory follows an outlaw horse feared by most horsemen, declared unmanageable and dangerous. This rogue horse was barred from racing at most of the country's racetracks after killing someone and putting many others in the hospital. Along comes a green novice trainer who had no fear of this horse and saw something in him that no one else saw. Together they would form a bond of love and trust that would lead them to winning many races and capturing the hearts of many fans along the way. Fan clubs were formed and nicknames were given to this crazy and wild horse - Crazy Moe, Pecks Bad Boy, Rahner's Rogue, Mighty Moe, and Magnificent Momentous. This is their story - a story of two underdogs overcoming all odds to achieve success on the toughest racing circuit in the world.

Millstone Township, NJ- 10/24/17 - During the week of August 26th, 2017, the harness racing twelve-year son of Mach Three, Killean Cut Kid, was found in a Louisiana pen where horses are held before shipping for slaughter to Canada or Mexico. The volunteers of Save Our Standardbreds From Slaughter (SOSS), present on Face Book, stepped in to offer help with the assistance of the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF).   Kid has been the controversial focus in the racing community and also received a great deal of attention from horse lovers everywhere, as it was posted on Face Book that he had been euthanized about one month earlier in Ohio.   Kid presented in thin weight when removed from his appalling situation. He had Decubitis ulcers on all four legs, and a fracture. Decubitus ulcers are pressure sores causing the tissue to die and slough off. Kid had also chewed or gnawed through the flesh exposing his extensor tendon on one of his legs. There is no confirmation of how he sustained his injuries, but veterinarians suspect that they are from bandage on for too long a period of time or they were too tight, or both.   This week, now that kid is in good weight, had time to heal and recover from his heinous ordeal; he will ship to Cream Ridge, NJ to Dr. Hogan who will perform grafts on his legs to reduce the scarring. The procedure, and recovery care are a gift to Kid. The same generous offer was also received from Dr. Barry Carter, located in Ohio. All who care are anxious to see him get to his last stage of this ordeal, a loving home. A few wonderful offers have been received to give him a soft place to land for life. Click here to see a current video of Killean Cut Kid.    Donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible, SRF, 353 Sweetmans Lane, Ste. 101, Millstone Township, NJ 08535, through the website AdoptaHorse.org/donate, through PayPal to @SRFHorsesandKids@gmail.com, or by calling SRF at 732-446-4422.                   SRF is different as it helps Standardbreds exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused; is feeding and caring for more than 280 trotters and pacers; is providing lifetime homes for more than 150 who are aged or injured and passed over by adopters; provides lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk again. SRF is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. with over 3,000 adoptions since 1989.
