New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program celebrated a successful Giving Tuesday, raising over $40,000 for their mission to rehab, retrain, and rehome retired racehorses.

Churchill Downs Incorporated, alongside their nine racetrack properties, pledged to match the first $20,000 raised by New Vocations in support of both Thoroughbred and Standardbred aftercare.

Over 100 supporters in the equestrian and racing communities rallied together in support of New Vocations' aftercare program.

“It was really great to see support come in from so many of our adopters and supporters along with many new contributors via our social media communities,” said Anna Ford, New Vocations Thoroughbred Program Director. “We are very grateful for Churchill Downs Incorporated's match as it was a huge help and definitely jump started the campaign. The funds raised will go towards the day-to-day costs associated with caring for the over 150 horses currently in our program.”
