Difficult economic times mean finding creative ways to save money and the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) is no exception. On January 26th the TRF announced a letter of intent was signed with thoroughbred breeder and owner Tom McKenna to transfer as many as 600 retired horses to his 45,000 acre ranch in Walsenburg, CO.
The transfer of the horses to Mr. Mckenna’s ranch will allow the foundation to significantly reduce cost and continue to fulfill their mission to save thoroughbred horses no longer able to compete on the racetrack from possible neglect, abuse and slaughter.
