The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) will have representatives stationed at the NYRA Community Booth during Saratoga’s opening day card Thursday. TRF will be honoring Quick Call, a TRF retiree and herd ambassador who celebrated his 35th birthday this year. The GIII Quick Call S. is one of a pair of graded features to be held at the Spa on opening day. The booth will feature a “Thoroughbred Trivia Challenge”, TRF merchandise, and a chance to meet the Program Manager of the TRF Second Chances Program in Wallkill, NY. The Community Booth is located just beyond the horse path, inside the East Avenue/Union Avenue entrance to the grandstand. It is to the right, behind the Jockeys’ Room/Silks Room. To honor Quick Call, the TRF is launching a “1,000 wishes” birthday campaign, with the goal of securing 1,000 gifts of $35 each from horse racing enthusiasts in honor of Quick Call’s 35 years. The campaign will launch July 11 and will finish on closing day of the Saratoga meet, Sept. 2. To learn more, visit his page here.
