  • The average age of a retired racehorse is 5 years old. They can live another 20-25 years. That’s where we come in, and we need your help! This Saturday September 3rd, at 8:30AM in Saratoga Spa State Park we Run for the Horses! Together, we hope to raise much needed funds that help care for retired racehorses. Proceeds benefit Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, Saratoga WarHorse, Old Friends at Cabin Creek, ACTT Naturally, Heading for Home: Race Horse Retraining and Adoption Center, Inc, & ReRun Thoroughbred Adoption. • • • #runforthehorses #5k #healthysaratoga #horseracing #retiredhorses #saratogaracetrack #saratoga
