People run to help racehorses

Summer in Saratoga is the season of thoroughbreds but what happens when summer ends and horses are no longer able to race.

The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundations say thoroughbreds have lives beyond racing and have earned second chances.

5 local race horse rescue groups gathered September 5 at the Orenda Pavilion in the Spa Park to run to support efforts to give horses a second chance.

Joining TRF at the Run For the Horses were Old Friends at Cabin Creek, ACTT Naturally, Heading for Home and Re-Run at North Country Horses.

You can help. The Thoroughbred Retirement (518) 226-0028, is the lead organization for rescue efforts.
