New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program is currently organizing its 14th annual Stallion Auction.

The auction is to be held on from February 8-14, 2012. New Vocations has placed over 3,500 retired racehorses since its inception and will adopt nearly 400 this year.

New Vocations annually offers hundreds of former racehorses a safety-net through transitional training and placement in carefully screened and monitored homes.

“We take retiring racehorses, break them to ride, and care for their needs until a qualified adopter can be found,” said NVRAP Executive Director Dot Morgan. “Then we educate the adopters on the idiosyncrasies of racehorses, answer myriads of questions, encourage them through problems, and offer training guidelines. And we take the horse back when the adopter gets a divorce, loses a job, relocates to an apartment, changes interests, or simply no longer wants the expense! This is no small feat! We must have help, lots of it.

"The stallion auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year. If you have a breeding that’s not going to be used please consider donating it. Or if you know someone that’s not using their share, let them know about our need. Generating dollars is the ultimate goal so if you don’t have a breeding, think about a year-end monetary contribution.”

New Vocations is a 501 (c) 3 charity, so donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law. For more information, email [email protected] or call 937-947-4020. Donations can be made through New Vocations' website ( or mailed to New Vocations 3293 Wright Rd. Laura, OH 45337. Every gift, large or small goes toward the care, retraining, and placement of retired racehorses.
