Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/24/2020 - Dave Fletcher received that surprising phone call from the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) bringing him the good news. "Mr. Fletcher, you are the winner of the $5,000 prize,' shared Judy Bokman, SRF's Director. "You have to be kidding, I'm astonished! I never won anything like this in my life!" he responded.   Mr. Fletcher has been a good friend to SRF's horses over the years. He is a racing fan and still likes to bet on them in his retirement. He recalled days at the track, with the old Meadowlands being his favorite one. Keep reading!   Mr. Fletcher recently helped SRF take a special horse from the slaughter-line and get him to safety. He didn't own race horses, he may have just enjoyed the racing days of this particular one, the winner of $184,000, as the horse was 18 when he had helped him. Coincidentally, this gelding has the namesake of the town where Mr. Fletcher now resides in PA. Keep reading!   While the release was being written, Mr. Fletcher called back. He and his wife requested that $1,000 of the prize go to the two young ladies on staff who were the strength behind SRF during the height of the pandemic in spring. The farm owner of SRF's leased facility in NJ had closed the doors to potential adopters. SRF's Trainer and Adoption Director worked around this tough obstacle getting horses into foster care, and doing adoptions sight unseen, as SRF was frantic due fundraisers being cancelled indefinitely. "These two ladies are so deserving of this!" said Mrs. Bokman. "I look forward to letting them know, thank you so very much" The Fletchers went further with their kindness, "Give the remaining to the horses!" SRF is so very appreciative of such a generous gift!   The horses have been blessed with winners giving back, but of course it is not expected. The spirit of the holiday does magical things and a gift like this means so much!   A heartfelt thanks comes from all at SRF to the wonderful supporters of this important annual fundraiser, and to those who assisted by selling tickets on their own at the tracks, boarding barns, and to their family and friends.   From all the horses comes happy holiday wishes and all good things in 2021.   About Standardbred Retirement Foundation   DONATE TO SRF TODAY!   Standardbred Retirement Foundation, since 1989, provides humane care and services for horse in need of lifetime homes, and in crisis, through rehabilitation, training, adoption, life-long follow-up or life time sanctuary and offering therapeutic equine opportunities for children and adults.   Tammy Cailliau

The Standardbred Retirement Foundation's effort, (SRF) with the help of so many wonderful people, has brought every one of the harness racing 71 trotters and pacers to safety!   A few updates are: the 2 year old with the oddly healed leg injury is headed to a home in Vermont; the aged mare is going to live out her last years in North Carolina; Windsong Gentile stole the heart of her foster home and will likely be adopted; Mr. Evergreen, who is emaciated and sick, will go back to his breeder; and Farmer Jones was helped by his past owner and is being adopted by his racing trainer. Eight horses still need homes; they have sponsors until homes are secured.   This battered and beaten down group of Standardbreds who have worked so hard for racing, and for some, then again for the rural communities, had a stroke of luck when the snow storm held off the truck to the Canadian slaughterhouses. That was immensely helpful as there wasn't much time to get them all safe before the original anticipated ship date of this past Tuesday. Those extra hours made it possible to help every trotter and pacer in the group from age 2 to a few in their late 20's.   So many people rallied to find homes, reached out to past owners and breeders to seek help, sought assistance from other organizations whose mission is very much like SRF's, and helped generously with donations. A few of those who helped are folks involved in racing who are appalled by the disregard for the welfare of these noble athletes by racing's decision makers. If racing thinks that this lack of consideration for these animals can be hidden in the 21st century, they might want to educate themselves on what happened to dog racing. Thoroughbred racing isn't much different, they use their aftercare program to shield themselves from much of the same.   To offer a home for any of the 8 please email, call or message the Face Book page.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 12/10/2020 – The Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) is pleading for help for 61 Standardbreds tagged and on the manifest to ship for slaughter.   The vast majority of these horses were the reason harness racing was rich not long ago. Now they stand in desperation in need of homes and donations to get them off the slaughter-line. SRF is asking for help for them; there are no provisions made by the racing industry for the horses when no longer profitable. They now stand in crammed pens. One mare produced 13 foals, a few had earnings of $250,000. to $400,000., but none have any of this hard earned money to help them now.   Home offers and donations are critically needed. A few have donations by past owners to help release them from the horrific trip to slaughter, but every horse needs a home. SRF asks for homes; foster homes; donations; assistance to reach out to past owners and breeders for help; and help from reputable organizations with a protective mission that aligns with SRF. The list of horses can be accessed on the website, see below. Tuesday, Dec.15, 2020 is the expected deadline, confirmation has not been received yet. Most of these horses are in Shippensburg, Pa., are few are being held in other pens. There is information below and on SRF's website at the link below. More photos are coming.   SRF is not financially able to take in horses at this time with more than 400 under their expense and care, and there is no space available at any of the facilities it uses. It is seeking help for them by screening home offers, foster offers, managing donations, and making arrangements for those that can become safe.   Many of these horses are very hungry, emaciated. Some have old racing injuries, and others are suffering from overuse on the roads, plowing and logging. With some food and good care and a chance to rehabilitate, each one can have a comfortable life being a horse for pasture or pleasure use.   SRF has its 12 Days of Giving list ready, its annual holiday fundraiser, however, with this situation being so critical, it asks donors to kindly help these horses instead.   The list of horses is at https://www.adoptahorse.org/emergencyrescue12-2020 Donations are needed for this effort to secure homes. Click here.   Please email SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com for questions and to offer help, call, or message the SRF's Face Book page. There are two SRF Face Book pages. Standardbred Retirement Foundation/SOSS Face Book page is managing this and messages there are received more quickly right now. Standardbred Retirement Foundation- AdoptaHorse.org is the second Face Book page that may be used for messages.   Telephone 609-738-3255 Donations are tax-deductible and may be made through https://www.adoptahorse.org/donate     Standardbred Retirement Foundation

The match gift rally to help the harness racing trotters and pacers at the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF) was tremendous! #Giving Tuesday friendship means so much!   SRF thanks the generous family who offered this match gift of $12,500. and every kind and generous donor who has helped bring so much to the horses under SRF's care.   Aside from the many already with SRF, there are hundreds of trotters and pacers every week tagged for slaughter that are hoping SRF will help them. Additional gifts mean SRF can help these others in need. SRF does not keep much of a reserve fund, it continues to help more horses as new gifts are received. Gifts are always very much appreciated.   Gifts, and sponsorship of a horse may be made through SRF's website at https://www.adoptahorse.org/ , by calling SRF at 609-738-3255, by mailing to SRF, PO Box 312, Millstone, NJ 08535, or in person at 42 Arneytown-Hornerstown Rd., Cream Ridge, NJ For questions by email at SRFHorsesandKids@gmail.com.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 11/12/2020 - The King Street Bluegrass Band had graciously offered to entertain at the Standardbred Retirement Foundation's, (SRF) Holiday Fun at the Farm - Beer and Wine Tasting. The cancellation of the event, due to COVID-19, has caused a great loss of funds for SRF to provide for the 386 horses. Knowing the struggle SRF faces the founding member of this fabulous band has rallied them together for an online concert.   Nancy Lisi, is one of the founding members of the band, is a 45 year veteran of the Harness Racing sport. After working as a groom in the 70’s, and showing her talent as the Second Trainer for George Warthen in the 80s, she had her own stable with the Maryland champion Sarah’s Double, and Ohio’s horse of the year, Majestic Falcon. As a sidelight, she often held jam sessions at her hometown racetrack, Rosecroft Raceway, with her friends playing a variety of music.   Nancy owns a few rescued trotters herself. She is aware that many of these horses, when no longer profitable, are sold to individuals who profit through resale for slaughter, or resale to very hard working lives as machinery in the rural communities.   Fred Hudson will be speaking at the online concert as an advocate for SRF's 31 year old non-profit. He will also auction off a signed copy of his book on the Roosevelt Raceway years “Where it all Began“, a beautiful print of the famous Foiled Again, and a few surprise items for great holiday gifts to help the effort! There is interaction through this Face Book Live event for bidding while enjoying the music.   Join in for a $9.99 donation from 2pm on Saturday, November 14th, 2020. It will run for as long at least 2 hours. To join in and support this fundraiser, follow this link https://fb.me/e/3CIEgvBBY.

Cream Ridge, NJ - 11/7/2020 - Covid 19 once again takes a fundraising event away from helping the horses at the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF). The Holiday Fun at the Farm - Beer and Wine Tasting is cancelled.   Judith Bokman, SRF's Director, shared, "The 2nd wave of Covid 19 is causing 120,000 new cases a day; SRF is concerned for the safety of all. It is an outdoor event, but enforcing the precautions at the farm it leases would be difficult. It's disappointing, so many people were looking forward to it, and SRF depends so much on fundraising events like this."   Donations from generous people make the most impact when it comes to getting the 376 horses fed and cared for; social fundraisers follow right behind. The loss of this last fundraiser, along with losing every one of them this year, will make it very difficult financially on the already strapped organization.   SRF asks to share this cancellation information to help reach others who were planning to attend. It thanks all who have made tremendous preparations and generous offers, the King Street Blue Grass Band, the Newark Mounted Police who have 14 of SRF's horses, the 2nd New Jersey Brigade-Civil War Re-enactment group, Zanis Furry Friends-the doggies, the Millstone Elks Club, Milton Paris and Getting Ahead in Business, the Court Jester Restaurants, Bites and Bowls Food, and the numerous volunteers who are significant in getting so much done at SRF everyday.   To help SRF with this struggle to feed the horses due to another cancellation, please make a tax-deductible gift here https://www.adoptahorse.org/donate.

Cream Ridge, NJ -9/2/2020 - Cheyenne Western and Weapons Dealer join their harness racing friends at the New York City Mounted Police Unit, says the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, (SRF).   Genius At Work was the first to join the ranks of the Police Department and his work ethic and wonderful demeanor has lead to others being invited to see if they can make the cut.   There is a lot involved in trying a horse for mounted police work. These horses must load and travel well, stand quietly in all situations when asked, tolerate crowds, smoke, bicycles, loud noises, guns, motorcycles, construction sights, flags, and much more. Their mannerism must also be stellar when called upon for public relations.   To be ready for this kind of work these horses go through about three months of training before they are tested on back streets. If they pass the test they get an official badge. The NYPD Unit has about 50 horses presently and were ready should they have been called upon during the troubling times NYC was experiencing.   Cheyenne Seeber, a 17.2 hand gentle giant made it through recently in record time. Cheyenne Western left SRF's Cream Ridge, NJ location yesterday along with Weapons Dealer to try out for the task.   The NYPD as well as Philadelphia, Newark, Rockland Cty, Otisville and other units in the country, along with several Sherriffs Departments have SRF horses as well. This breed has earned the name "Brainiac Breed", and rightfully so. That is a very common term used when describing the Standardbred.   To make a tax-deductible gift: https://www.adoptahorse.org/donate.   From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation
