Cream Ridge, NJ - The New Zealand harness racing sensation, Lazarus N, will stand stud in 2019 in the USA, and his owner Duncan Taylor has generously donation a share to the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF). The share will sell at the Harrisburg Sale on Thursday, November 8th.   Lazarus N is the richest Standardbred of all time from New Zealand and holds seven track records at various distances. He was New Zealand's Pacer of the Year in 2015, 2106 and 2017, and is that nation's defending Horse of the Year. He has earnings that top $4 Million.   Duncan Taylor, CEO of Taylor Made Sales and Stallions has been involved with horses most of his life, and is also a partner in California Chrome. Lazarus N was trained by Mark Purdon while in New Zealand, then Jimmy Takter in the U.S., and Ernie Martinez is the man who brought them all together.   "The Wonder from Down Under" will stand at Deo Volente farm. Coincidentally, the SRF story began because of a New Zealand horse, Nadala, who was owned by one of SRF's Founders.   "The SRF, its supporters and friends are most appreciative of this generous gift," said the Executive Director and co-founder Judith Bokman. "This wonderful gift could not have come at a better time in the history of the organization. We have 388 trotters and pacers under our expense. It's a monumental task to meet their needs, and more and more people are reaching out to us because of the program's unique way to protect each horse so no horse is ever at risk again. Funding the program has been the SRF's greatest struggle for 29 years."   For further information please contact SRF at (609) 738-3255 or via email at SrfHorsesandKids@gmail.com.

Cream Ridge, NJ - Sept. 18, 2018 - Just a month ago, the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) helped 38 horses in the kill pen, of the 38 one was helped privately, payment made directly to the kill pen and the horse released to that person, SRF had no involvement. Now, that horse, the 12-year old son of Royal Art with earnings of $118,000, Royal Nation, is back there today and pleading for a home.   About 35% of the Standardbreds in kill pens come with the story that the owner found the horse a good home. In addition to Royal Nation, it's only been a few weeks and once again another horse, Apache Rebel, a 15-year-old son of FT Apache Rebel, also taken by an individual directly from a kill pen, is at risk in another kill pen. In the month of August, five horses adopted out by another well-known program with limited follow-up policies, that relinquish ownership to adopters, were also found in kill pens.   These turnarounds are costly and senseless.   SRF urges people who find homes for their horses to look at the contract SRF uses online at their website AdoptaHorse.org and to craft similar requirements. Also, the 29-year-old organization can be reached at anytime if guidance is needed when seeking a home on their own.   These two horses are now in immediate need of safety, good homes and financial support in order to be bailed from the kill pen by 8pm tonight. Of the utmost importance is for these two to have safe home offers.   To offer a home, make a donation so SRF can get them released, should a home offer be received, contact Tammy at 609-738-3255 SrfHorsesandKids@gmail.com. SRF has 413 trotters and pacers under its care and expense, it cannot take them in at this time without additional support or sponsorship to carry their expenses till spring, when adoptions pick up again.   SRF asks you to forward this email to others as well to encourage help. SRF is different than any other organization   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation

Cream Ridge, NJ - Aug. 14, 2018 - The 38 horses at risk for slaughter still have great needs. Most have been removed from harms way, but 13 need homes. Some had offers that have fallen through. The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is unable to take on new horses at this time, with 393 already under its care and expense.   Without homes, the expenses for care weighs heavily on the 29-year-old non-profit. At $350 a month for each of them, and with colder months close by - it is likely they will be with SRF until spring or summer of next year. A few appear to have been in trailer or road accidents. Many will need a long period of rest and rehabilitation to become whole again, physically and in spirit.   Homes and donations are very much needed. To offer a home contact Tammy at 609-739-3255 or email SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com. Donations are desperately needed.

Goshen, NY - The harness racing community once again showed robust support for two of the sport's most important charities - The Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame and the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) - at a casino-themed fundraiser held on Hambletonian eve at The Meadowlands in East Rutherford. .The August 3 event, with presenting sponsorship from the Svanstedt Stable, Lennart Agren's SRF Stable and Meadowlands Racetrack, featured nearly 200 people playing casino games and vying in a poker tournament to win prizes that included an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas sponsored by Roberts Communications, an evening in Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman's box at the stadium, harness racing art, high tech devices and baskets of wine and spirits. Approximately $80,000 was raised and will be shared equally by both groups. A buffet dinner and an open bar was provided throughout the evening to go along with blackjack, roulette, craps and a great night of racing. Arden Homestead Stable sponsored the open bar, Charlie Keller and Yankeeland Farms sponsored the raffle and Marvin Katz underwrote dessert. The important work of both programs, preserving and presenting the history of the sport and assisting equine athletes after their racing days, was also supported by Brittany Farms and the American Ideal Syndicate, sponsor of many of the casino prizes. Other sponsors included Tony Alagna, Bill Augustine, Arch Madness, Burke Stable, George Brennan, Bluegrass Staking, Brian Brown Stable, Cameo Hills Farm, Corey Callahan, John and Paula Campbell, Diamond Creek Farms, Daniel Dube, Jay Farrar, Ted Gewertz and Claire Chappell, Hambletonian Society, Brad and Bonnie Grant, Yannick Gingras, Real Desire Syndicate, David McDuffee, Freehold Raceway, Mark Ford Training Center, Marion Marauder Group, McWicked, Erv Miller Stable, Julie and Andy Miller, Preferred Equine, Seelster Farms, Thestable.ca, Sweet Lou, Tim Tetrick, Brian Sears, Nick Surick, Linda Toscano, Howard Taylor, Paula Wellwood and Hambletonian winning driver Scott Zeron. Their generosity helped ensure that proceeds from participants' casino fees went directly to support the work of the Museum and the SRF. The Museum is planning a major expansion project and the SRF is caring for nearly 400 horses. The money raised on August 3 will be an important first step in achieving goals for both groups. A charitable event has been part of the Hambletonian festivities since 1991 and has raised a total of $1.4 million.  

Cream Ridge, NJ - Aug. 10, 2018 - As the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) continues to chisel at the slaughter bound harness racing trotters and pacers whose deadline is Friday, August 10, 2018 at 8pm, the kindness that has been given to those to date has saved twenty-four of the thirty-eight marked for shipment. Still eighteen homes are needed and $12,000 to release them from the "kill pens", but without homes an additional $3,000 for each horse is also needed to give them care, likely through the winter, until adoptions pick up again.   Some home offers include a few for Clam Sauce, the elderly guy who needs veterinary attention, he is on his way right now to SRF for care. Nu Xample is being returned to his owner in Canada, and Da Vinci Road is already in quarantine with his adopter, she is one of the very few with stellar breeding, sired by Western Hanover. A wonderful home in Delaware is offering a place for two older horses, because she said, "I am old too."   "There has been such tremendous help from people offering homes, owners and breeders who have taken their horses back, gifts to help release those from the "kill buyers", but leaving fourteen behind will be very painful, if it comes to that," states Judy Bokman, SRF's Executive Director. "We are not in the position to overextend further. Giving back to their horses has always been something we hoped owners, trainers, and drivers would be compelled to do, and appreciate those already stepping up. SRF hopes this critical situation generates others to follow so we can avoid the painful decision of who gets saved and who ships.   To help a horse with a tax-deductible gift, and to offer a home: * SRF Paypal * SRF GoFundMe * SRF Website   or call Tammy at 609-738-3255, email SrfHorsesandKids@gmail.com.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation  

Cream Ridge, NJ - Aug. 8, 2018 - Twenty-five of thirty-eight Standardbreds waiting with hope to be spared the trip to slaughter are still at great risk. The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is asking for help for them. Some are tagged for the trip tonight, Wednesday, August 8, 2018 from loading, a few have until Friday. Those saved on Tuesday, Bullville Kriss, Nu Example, Icey Rose were taken back by breeders and owners, while Fox Valley Tucson, and Royal Nation were saved privately. Crazy Horse, R M Fantasie, Clam Sauce, and Red Energy were released from the manifest and are safe, but need homes. Davinci and Shezlikemycousin are also safe and have homes. Granny Clampet and Mystical China are safe but have no home offers. Twenty-five still need funds for their release from the trip to slaughter, and also need homes. Donations for horses whose "kill prices" are paid for either need a home or funds to carry them through quarantine, rehabilitation, homing and the follow-up process so they are never at risk again. SRF is unable to take on anymore horses at this time, with 393 under their expense and care, homes are also very much needed. These horses range from emaciated to healthy and are wanting a new life as pleasure horses whether for riding, driving or just grazing well deserved green grass. Most had days on the track followed by years of pulling heavy farm equipment, and or served as transportation. The deadline for several is tonight, others have until Friday. We have several ways your can help: * SRF Paypal * SRF GoFundMe * SRF Website     To offer a home email Tammy at SrfHorsesandKids@gmail.com.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation    

Cream Ridge, NJ --- Thirty-eight Standardbreds are waiting with hope to be spared. They are tagged and weighed ready to ship to slaughter in Canada and Mexico. The Standardbred Retirement Foundation is asking for help for them to prevent this. Some are just a day away from loading, a few have until Wednesday. In North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Texas, and New York, all but a few are emaciated, aged, and injured. One is already 30 years old, he has an injury to his eye and his age shows everywhere on his body; he is the son of Amity Chef. Most had days on the track followed by years of pulling heavy farm equipment and/or served as transportation. In addition to the cost to release them from these "kill pens," where they are held before shipping, each horse needs a safe place to go, a home.  This is a large undertaking for SRF which already has 393 Standardbreds in need of homes, but SRF will do all they can to help if kind and generous people will change the destiny for these horses. What is needed are tax deductible gifts to pay for each, ship them to safety and for quarantine, rehabilitation, boarding and a home. To make a gift to help or to offer a home, contact Tammy at 609.738.3255, SrfHorsesandKids@gmail.com. The deadlines for a few are tonight, others have until Tuesday or Wednesday. A list of only 29 are included, the others are now being inventoried on the manifest which will be available tomorrow.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation

It's described by the maker as, "...absolutely delicious with ripe, luscious fruit that wraps around the tannins. It is a seductive wine with vibrant aromas and flavors of jammy blackberries, spice, black currants, vanilla and black licorice." Donated by Murray Brown. -A Trianglist print by Standardbred owner Howard Schoor, #16 of 100. His Trianglist works embody inescapable purity and the art is unsullied, clean, bold and crisp.

It is wall mount ready and has a USB port and built tuner. -Framed and double matted print of, "Dan Patch The Fastest Harness Horse The World Has Ever Seen." Donated from the collection of Tom Charters, former president of the Hambletonian Society, this work is 33.5" x 27.5" inches and features Dan and trainer/driver Myron McHenry in full stride, with competitors in vain pursuit. Dan Patch was an undefeated pacer who raced across America after the turn of the last century. His dominance was such that owners refused to enter their horses against him, so he raced against the clock and was the first horse to hit the 1:55 time for the mile. -Framed head shot print of Dan Patch, circa 1905 - 1920. Size is 15' x 19" and features Dan in a white halter with notation, "Dan Patch 1:55," at the bottom of the image. This is one of dozens of promotional posters that Dan's owner distributed to promote his horse. Circa 1906. Donated by Tom Charters. -Framed and double matted poster (25" x 19") promoting the Prix D'Amerique, the French spectacle of harness racing and pageantry that takes place in January each year. The image is an impressionistic representation of the race from a head-on vantage point. The event attracts the very best trotters from all over the world and this poster is signed by Jean-Etienne DuBois, who drove Coktail Jet to win the 1996 Prix D'Amerique. Donated by Tom Charters. -Framed print, with a hunter green mat, of a trotter pulling a high wheel sulky in full stride, driver attired in solid maroon silks, with the descriptor, "The Trotting Horse Axtell, Interunnina Record 2:19." There is a small mark of P.V.1 in the corner. Donated by Tom Charters and Janet Terhune. From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation
