Cream Ridge, NJ - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation's (SRF) Holiday Fun at the Farm this past Saturday (11/16) hosted a large crowd of guests and offered much fun for all, but the big hit was Horse Plop Bingo.   When 11-year-old, Big Boy Toz, Dylan ( a tag number from a kill pen whose tattoo we cannot read), and 7 year old Cheyenne Western entered the Bingo ring, it took about four minutes to crown a winner. Each five-dollar donation offered a number on the Bingo grid in hopes that the horse would drop his plop right there. Arlene Santhouse, one of SRF's wonderful adopters was the winner of a $250 Amazon gift card!   War Cloud, a towering 17.2 hand gelding hung over the stall guard all day nuzzling every pair of eyes on him. Another strappy fellow, Northern Patriot, blind in one eye, did just the same. Riders from the Rockland County Mounted Police unit, who have SRF horses, brought their children and checked out a few new prospects. A few supportive racehorse owners joined as well, and what a loss for harness racing not to capitalize on the affection the general public has for these horses. The few owners in attendance saw that firsthand.   The firepit to keep warm, toasting marshmallows, the gift auction, roping demonstration, and the numerous horses shown under Western and English tack were all hits.   Numerous college students, regular volunteers at SRF; Delran, and Point Pleasant High School volunteers; and about two dozen other wonderful folks giving of their time made it all come together. SRF appreciates all the support for the event, donors, volunteers, and guests.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation

Cream Ridge, NJ - 9/16/19 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation's, (SRF) horses had a presence at the Trail to Zero ride in Manhattan on Saturday, Sept. 15th, 2019. They participated in the the effort to raise awareness of suicide among our veteran service men and women. The ride was 20 miles long and represented the number of veterans who take their own lives each day.   The Newark, NJ Mounted Unit has fourteen SRF horses serving, and numerous cities across the country are staffed with this "Brainiac Breed" from SRF, several prison patrol units, as well as Sheriff Departments, including Texas. NYC still has just one. Coincidentally he was owned by Jeff Gural of the Meadowlands, and Monica Bencal.   With more than 4,000 adoptions, SRF feels it can bring together enough adopters to participate in 2020 to support this effort to help our country's veterans.   "I feel very strongly about supporting this," one adopter expressed. "Next year I will help coordinate it, and appreciate the help of any other adopters to make it happen." SRF will keep a list of those interested in participating, and planning for this very worthwhile cause, and will contact all in 2020; email your interest to SRFFundraising@gmail.com.   Our thanks to Robbie Siegleman for recognizing SRF's horses and photographing them.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation  

Cream Ridge, NJ - 9/12/19 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) seeks tax-deductible donations of harness racing breedings to help the 378 trotters and pacers under its expense and care.   SRF is the largest, most productive, Standardbred exclusive non-profit in the US. Ninety percent of the support for this program comes from individuals.   Why SRF needs your help. It's different: SRF follows up semi-annually on every adoption for life so no horse is ever at risk. SRF cares for 350 more horses than any other Standardbred exclusive organization everyday. Your support through tax-deductible breeding donations, or with a tax-deductible gift is much needed and appreciated.   Please support this vital fundraiser.   For breeding donations please contact Tammy at 609-738-3255, or via email at SRFHorsesandKids@gmail.com.   To make a tax-deductible donation Call the office at 609-738-3255, or email SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com, donate online on our facebook page link below or our website link, both links are below. Thank you! Facebook/SRFHorses Donate to SRF Today   About The Standardbred Retirement Foundation   Standardbred Retirement Foundation provides humane care and services for horses in need of lifetime homes, and in crisis, through rehabilitation, training, adoption, life-long follow-up or life-time sanctuary, and offers therapeutic equine opportunities for children and adults.   SRF is a 30 year old registered non-profit organization, donations are tax-deductible.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation    

Cream Ridge, NJ - 9/4/19 - The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) received very touching photos of what is usually only found in a fairytale.   Because a semi-annual follow-up is done on every adopted harness racing horse for life, SRF receives many photos capturing the joy these horses bring to people who adopt them.   Sarah Berrah, an eighteen-year old mare, was already on the manifest, weighed and bearing the United States Department of Agriculture, (USDA) tag required to ship across the border to the Canadian slaughterhouse. This very lucky mare had the dedication of the SRF to keep that from happening. These photos tell a thankful story to SRF’s supporters.   Funds were raised and SRF was able to move this lovely mare to safety. She was shipped to a facility for quarantine and rehabilitative care. Once healthy again she was shipped to San Antonio, Texas to her adopter.   Her adopter, also named Sarah, shared these photos of her young children who spend every day with this gentle mare. They paint pictures together, splash in the kiddie pool, and mosey around on the 20 acres, and a few of the children are still in diapers. Sarah, the horse, takes part in most everything the kids do and waits with her nose on the back door for them every morning!   This mare, by KG's Joshua, was born in Lancaster, Pa. and was owned by a Lancaster, Pa resident. She raced until 2005 and then it's anyone's guess where she was all these years. Knowing the typical life of Standardbreds when no longer raced, it is safe to say she escaped the earlier retched trip to Canada or Mexico and was a workhorse in the rural community. Mid to late teens is usually when these horses are turned over for fresh ones, so we are told. Now being of that target age, is likely why she was found in the kill pen in Oklahoma. She finally has some luck in her life!   SRF is a 30 year old registered non-profit organization, donations are tax-deductible. Donate to SRF   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation
