"Harness racing champions racing for yesterday's stars is what the Breeders Crown pledge is all about." stated Winnie Morgan Nemeth, the Standardbred Program Director for New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program.

Trainers and owners have the opportunity to give back to Standardbreds retiring from the track by joining the Breeders Crown pledge. In 2018 this pledge raised over $12,000 for our program and allowed us to care for and transition over 100 Standardbreds into new homes.

"This is an easy and effective way for racing connections to get involved and make a difference by giving back to the horses beyond the track," Nemeth said. "It is a positive way to show that harness racing does care about its retirees."

New Vocations is a 501 (3) charity that focuses on rehabilitating, retraining and rehoming Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds leaving the track. Since its inception in 1992, New Vocations has placed over 7,000 retired racehorses into new homes.

Connections can pledge to donate a small percentage of their horses' earnings in the upcoming Breeders Crown to support New Vocations' mission. To make a pledge, contact Winnie Morgan Nemeth 734-320-7918 or winnie@horseadoption.com or visit us online and pledge: newvocations.org/breeders-crown-pledge
