Sponsor a Retired Racehorse!

The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation Sponsorship Program helps provide lifelong care for former racehorses that are unsuitable for adoption. 

Sponsors receive a personalized packet about their selected horse, photos and updates throughout the year, and even the opportunity to meet the horse in person.

Sponsorships make great gifts to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions, and we can mail a packet directly to the recipient of your choice.

We also offer a “kid-friendly” sponsorship packet for youngsters!
