The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation's Barbecue at the Barn returns as an in-person event and will be held at Saratoga Winery Tuesday, Aug. 24, from 5-9 p.m. The event, which sold out in 2019, was held as a drive-thru in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to a meal, the event will feature family-friendly activities, music, raffle and silent auction items, along with book signings by Chris Brown, author of “Roll Cyrus Roll” and award-winning broadcaster and former jockey Donna Brothers, author of “Inside Track.” There will also be guest appearances from racing celebrities including Maggie Wolfendale Morley, Acacia Courtney, Ramon Dominguez, and more, as well as a few special equine guests.
“We are so excited to welcome back so many friends of the herd to celebrate the summer at Saratoga,” said Kim Weir, Director of Major Gifts and Planning. “2020 was certainly a year unlike any other and we are so grateful for the continued support of our mission to save horses and change lives.”
Tickets, which must be purchased in advance, are available for advance pricing of $40 through Aug. 1 before increasing to $45 per ticket.
