“The care of our own retired racehorses is hugely important to us, so we are excited to team up with the TAA and TRF for a second year,” said Kathryn Sharp, chief operating officer of Ninety North Racing Stable. “The party was a huge success last year, and hopefully this year’s event will be even bigger.”

Based in Lexington, Kentucky, the nonprofit TAA accredits, inspects, and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain, and rehome Thoroughbreds.

“We are delighted to have again been named beneficiaries of the ABR and Ninety North Belmont Fan Bash,” TAA Operations Consultant Stacie Clark Rogers said. “The event is a great opportunity to engage with guests, who run the gamut from racing personalities to new, casual, and hardcore fans of the sport.”

Founded in 1983, the TRF has served thousands of retired Thoroughbred racehorses. Most horses under TRF care are provided with a quiet retirement at pasture. However, hundreds of TRF horses have successfully been retrained and adopted out to homes where they began new lives as pets, competition horses, police mounts, or equine-assisted therapy partners.

“We, at the TRF, are thrilled and thankful to be part of the 2016 Belmont Fan Bash,” said Diana Pikulski, director of external affairs for TRF. “The crowd and this event are fun, relaxed, and incredibly supportive of the TRF and its mission. It is a special night in a room full of revelers who really love horses and make horse welfare a part of their Belmont experience.
