The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, with the support of Saratoga Arts, has launched an online art exhibit and auction to support the TRF Second Chances Program and Second Chances Prison ART, both at Pleasant Valley State Prison. The exhibit, which features artwork created by incarcerated individuals in the Second Chance Prison ART Program, opened Jan. 1 and auction bidding will begin Feb. 1 and continue through Feb. 29.

Proceeds from the auction will directly benefit the TRF Second Chances Program, supporting its mission to provide retired Thoroughbred racehorses with sanctuary and offering incarcerated individuals in the Second Chances Program the opportunity to learn valuable skills through vocational training.

Proceeds will also benefit the Second Chance Prison ART Program and allow for new works to be created with the goal of raising more funds.

Saratoga Arts has provided the TRF with the online auction platform. View the online art exhibit and auction here.
