This Sunday, the 2014 Super Bowl security detail will include horses that found their new careers through the Standardbred Retirement Foundation.

The Newark Mounted Police Department has nine of SRF’s horses, and the force is in the saddle protecting the public.

Coincidentally, many of these horses have been around the oval at the adjacent Meadowlands Racetrack during their racing careers.

The photo accompanying this story features Officer Camacho riding 11-year-old Allentown (aka ‘Chief’) and Officer Schroeder with 16-year-old Cunning Liar (aka ‘Commander’) pictured in the middle.

At pre-game events and on game-day, additional Newark Mounted Patrol SRF horses may include, 18-year-old Blue Hoodlum, eight-year-old Shark Chaser, five-year-old Uthinkithinkurkidn, 11-year-old Prince Juniper, seven-year-old Echo Of Thunder, 15-year-old Miracle Man, and 11-year-old YF Avenger. They serve many notable events throughout the city like the Super Bowl.

The SRF is in its 25th year giving dignity and life to racehorses in need of a stable future. Nearly 2,600 adoptions have been made to loving homes for pleasure, and competitive riding, and driving disciplines. Every horse adopted out by SRF is followed-up for life.

One hundred and ninety horses are currently in the SRF’s care, of which 110 are unadoptable and will remain in SRF’s full-care for life. To adopt, help by making a tax-deductible contribution, or to sponsor a horse in need, contact SRF at [email protected], 732-446-4422, or visit this award-winning organization at adoptahorse.org and be sure to ‘like us’ on Facebook.
