New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program has announced that the second barn at their new Kentucky facility has been sponsored by Robsham Stables and Mike Repole. The barn, located on Mereworth Farm, will be named the Robsham- Repole Barn. The sponsorship is part of the New Vocations Capital Campaign that was launched in 2015 to build the racehorse adoption facility in the heart of the Bluegrass.
“New Vocations’ vision, strategy and commitment to continue to expand their aftercare efforts is something that is greatly needed in the racing industry and something I’m excited to support,” Repole said.
Patricia Davis, Robsham Family Trustee, added, “[Paul Robsham] would be very proud of how New Vocations has grown and he would be honored to be a part of the new facility at Mereworth Farm.”
The New Vocations Capital Campaign has raised over $1.7 million of its $2 million goal. Once complete, the new facility, which encompasses an additional barn provided by Mereworth Farm, will house over 60 retired racehorses in various stages of rehabilitation and retraining to prepare for a new career and loving home.
