Help us support more than 200 retired and rescued Thoroughbreds during this time of need.
At Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement farm in Georgetown, KY, one of our key sources of income is our agri-tourism program. Our farm gates are open daily to visitors who come from all over the world to get up-close-and-personal with our rescued and retired Thoroughbred champions. They come daily for tours that see them taking a selfie with Kentucky Derby winner Silver Charm, smooching three-time Santa Anita Handicap winner Game On Dude on the nose, and feeding some carrots to Belmont Stakes winner Touch Gold. Our tourism can raise as much as $10 - $15,000 a month in the summer season that all goes to feeding and caring for these amazing animals. And while the champs attract guests, the revenue they raise helps support the numerous horses we have that never set a hoof inside a winner's circle or those that ended up in less-than-savory situations.
But in March, as the Pandemic took hold of our nation, our daily tours and gift-shop sales came to a screeching halt, seriously endangering the well-being of our herd . We're doing everything we can to weather this terrible storm. Can you help by making a donation today?
