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.

Millstone Township, NJ - 9/25/17 - For 28 years the most important annual fundraiser for the Standardbred Retirement Foundation's (SRF) is the donation, and sale of harness racing breedings to stallions.   Dedicated to Standardbreds exclusively, SRF has 250 trotters and pacers in need of homes, nearly 200% more than any other organization, and prides itself on securing homes for life so no adopted horse from SRF is ever at risk.   Donations are tax-deductible and help rehabilitate, rescue, retrain, adopt, and follow-up every adoption for life, as well as support SRF's Youth Programs.   To gift breedings please contact Tammy at 732-446-4422, via email at SRFhorsesandkids@gmail.com, or visit SRF's website at AdoptaHorse.org.   SRF is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S., is different as it helps Standardbred's exclusively, young, aged, injured, neglected, or abused; is feeding and caring for more than 250 trotters and pacers; providing lifetime homes for more than 150 retirees; provides lifetime follow-up for every adopted horse, never to be at risk.   Standardbred Retirement Foundation, 353 Sweetmans Lane, Suite 101, Millstone Twp., NJ 08535  

Millstone Township, NJ - 9/7/2017 - During the week of August 26th, 2017, the harness racing twelve-year-old 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. "Kid", with earnings of $315,239 for more than fifteen owners in his racing career. Kid had a sesamoid fracture and was racing in $3,500 claiming races prior. Somehow, he was shipped from Ohio and was standing more than 1,000 miles away in Bastrop, Louisiana with severe injuries to all four legs, but social media posts read "Kid was put down".   The relation of this post to Killean Cut Kid is indisputable.   SOSS volunteers spent several days, with a tight deadline imposed by the dealer or he would ship for slaughter, seeking support for him to move to him to safety.   Funds were solicited to pay the dealer, ship to quarantine, quarantine him, and for veterinary care.   There is no confirmation of how he sustained his injuries, but it is suspected that they are from bandages on for too long a period of time or they were too tight, or both resulting in Decubitus ulcers on all four legs. Decubitus ulcers are pressure sores causing the tissue to die and slough off. Kid also chewed or gnawed through the flesh exposing his extensor tendon on one of his legs. Horses will do this to relieve the itch.   The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is in the background for SOSS and took on the effort to help Kid. There were a few offers to take him, and demands as well, but once seen by a Veterinarian, his injuries were too severe, and his condition too poor to move him.   Kid remains under Veterinary care and an update is received regularly through Dr. Stephen Bokman. His prognosis is good as a pasture pet, and possibly a little more, but he will have scarring. His pain is manageable and he is gaining weight; he continues to try to gnaw at the injuries, that is being closely monitored. He lies down often and cannot stand for long periods of time.   To date, since August 30, 2017, the following are the facts in regard to donations received to help this horse. SOSS received $1135, one thousand one hundred thirty-five dollars in donations specifically for Kid. That was used to pay the dealer and ship him to safety. In addition, in the mix of donations during that short period of time to help the other 16 Standardbreds, we can only estimate that another $600 was received, as there were no notes as to where these donations should be applied. SRF has received $180 for Kid. There has been a great deal of conversation noted on social media about donations sent, but it is evident that all did not materialize.   There are numerous expenses blocking the way for his continued care. This gentle gelding needs donations for his veterinary care; boarding, possibly for a few months until his condition improves; his individual care including hand walking, wrapping and unwrapping, and treating his injuries daily; monitoring him to avoid any more self inflicted damage; transportation to SRF or to an offer for help; and in the end, Kid may need to retire for life under SRF's expense for another twenty years or so. His expenses are expected to range from $4,000 - 8,000.   SRF is already supporting all the expenses for more than 150 trotters and pacers passed over by adopters due to age or injury, and another 98 in rehabilitation, and re-training for adoption. If Kid must retire with SRF the expenses will exceed tens of thousands of dollars. We are very hopeful that the right offer for a lifetime home for him is in the mix or will come through.   Serious inquiries to home him when he is ready should fill out an application for adoption on SRF's website at AdoptaHorse.org. Donations are still needed, are tax-deductible and may be made by mail to SRF, 353 Sweetmans La., Office 101, Millstone Township, NJ 08535, through the website at https://www.adoptahorse.org/donate, through Paypal at SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com, or by calling SRF at 732 446-4422. Please note Kid on your support for him.   SRF is the largest Standardbred adoption program in the U.S. with over 3,000 adoptions since 1989.
