The connections of Triple Crown hopeful Justify (Scat Daddy)-owners WinStar Farm, China Horse Club, Starlight Racing, SF Bloodstock, Head of Plains LLC, trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Mike Smith–have committed to donating a percentage of their GI Belmont S. earnings to support the New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program.

“The China Horse Club, and all of our partners, take great pride in the care and welfare of our horses. New Vocations exemplifies all we believe in and support, in the aftercare of not just ours, but all horses,” said China Horse Club’s racing and bloodstock manager Michael Wallace. “As a group, we are proud to support New Vocations and its belief. We see a Triple Crown bid as an ideal platform to acknowledge the importance of aftercare.”

Anna Ford, Program Director for New Vocations, added, “We are thrilled to see the success this ownership group has had together as they are all longtime supporters of our efforts. Every member of this group truly cares about their horse’s well-being beyond the track; we are extremely grateful for their generosity as we rely heavily on donations to continue to serve hundreds of racehorses retiring each year.”
