New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program &
Retired Racehorse Training Project



The event will begin with a southern dinner and cash bar followed by educational and entertaining sessions surrounding selecting and working with off-the-track Thoroughbreds. Sessions will be led by several well-known equestrians such as Olympic rider Phillip Dutton and Hall of Fame Jockey Chris McCarron.

Last year's event drew over 300 people from fifteen states to hear insights on selecting and training Thoroughbreds off the track by Bruce Davidson, Dr. Steve Allday, Chris McCarron, and others. The lucky 400 ticket buyers to this year's event will enjoy the following lineup:

Recognition of 2013 Rolex Thoroughbred Riders by The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program

As of today there are 15 scheduled to compete and all have been invited to attend. Here is a link to the list of horses with background research done by RRTP.

On The Road To Rolex

Cathy Wieschoff & Dorothy Crowell will appear with young ex-racehorses that are thriving in their programs & may someday make it to Rolex. You saw these horses last year at this event and will be impressed by their progress.

Selecting Your Next Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorse

Phillip Dutton and Dr. Kevin Keane will evaluate a group of  New Vocations arrivals & discuss their strengths & weaknesses as sport horse prospects. Phillip will explain what he looks for in horses off the track. Dr. Keane will discuss the effects of racing injuries on suitability for second careers.
A Closer Look and a First Ride

Eric Dierks, Daniel Clasing, & Tracey Bienemann will ride 3 horses that Phillip & Kevin pick out of the New Vocations group. They will demonstrate strategies to settle racehorses in a challenging environment while evaluating temperament, movement, & possibly a bit of jumping talent.
What Jockeys Know that the Rest of Us Should Learn

Hall of Fame jockey Chris McCarron will demonstrate the skills that he teaches at his NARA jockey school and that made thousands of horses run their hearts out for him.
Online & Printed Catalog of Local Thoroughbreds for Sale or Adoption

Catalog will include listings of 41 off-the-track Thoroughbreds available for sale or adoption in the Lexington area. These horses can be seen on the RRTP web site under Kentucky Horse Listings
