May 30, 2014 – Laura, OH- New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program announced today the generous donation from Horse Gold, Inc of its GastroMax3 (ulcer preventative) product to cover the needs of the 400 retired racehorses that will go through the adoption program this year.
The aftercare program depends heavily upon donated goods and services to fulfill its mission. New Vocations with six facilities and 100 horses in various stages of rehabilitation and retraining needs donations of all kinds as the horses are prepared for new careers and homes.
“Evidence suggests that 75-85% of the horses at the track have ulcers,” Executive Director Dot Morgan said. “Most of the horses that come to New Vocations have been under a lot of stress and benefit greatly from the soothing properties of GastroMax3. Until now, we could only justify the cost for the worst cases. This generous donation will benefit all the horses as they transition to new careers and homes.”
“These horses ran their hearts out for our enjoyment,” said Horse Gold, Inc CEO Scott Robinson. “I wanted to provide enough GastroMax3 for all the adoption horses. In fact, anyone adopting a horse and wishing to continue with GastroMax3 can call or email us at Horse Gold, and we will give them a huge discount on the product. We don't want the cost to be a factor in maintaining the health of the retired horses. Dr. Mangini and I hope with this donation and partnership we can continue to help those horses that need it.” To learn more about GastroMax3 or contact Horse Gold about their generous offer to adopters of retired racehorses, visit www.horsegold.com
New Vocations first opened their barn doors in 1992 to retired racehorses looking for new careers. Starting with a single farm in Dayton, Ohio the program has grown to six facilities in: Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Serving over 40 Standardbred and Thoroughbred racetracks, New Vocations works directly with owners and trainers in need of an aftercare program for their retiring horses.
The program has a sound adoption system in place that is proven to move a large number of horses in a rather short period of time. Their focus is on adoption verses retirement, believing that each horse benefits from an individual home and a purpose. For more information visit www.newvocations.org.
