Delaware, OH --- New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program is currently seeking stallion seasons for its 17th annual stallion auction to be held February 9-13 via Ongait.com. All proceeds go toward the rehabilitation, retraining, and placement of retired Standardbreds.

“The service New Vocations provides our retired horses is very important to me and to the industry,” said Walnut Hall Ltd. President and General Manager Alan Leavitt. “The number of horses this program is helping is amazing. I support their efforts every year with all of my stallions, and I want to encourage others to join in and help this worthy cause.”

“We are very thankful for the stallion owners and farms that have already stepped up and committed breedings,” shared Executive Director Dot Morgan. “During this holiday season we hope others will consider gifting a breeding to our auction. The funds raised are vital to helping us meet the needs of the hundreds of retired racehorses we take in each year.”

The annual stallion auction is one of the program’s largest fundraising events. It’s held online via OnGait.com and typically offers more than 80 breedings to stallions throughout the U.S and Canada. Seasons donated to date include Always A Virgin, Chapter Seven, Conway Hall, Deweycheatumnhowe and Wishing Stone. To donate a breeding, please contact Dot Morgan at 937.947.4020 or dot@horseadoption.com.

New Vocations leads the nation in racehorse adoptions, taking in more than 400 horses a year. Standardbreds entering the program are rehabilitated, broke to ride and cared for until a qualified adopter is found. Once adopted, the program continues to follow each horse to ensure that it's receiving proper care and is committed to taking the horses back should they ever be in need of a home.

New Vocations has a sound adoption system in place that is proven to move a large number of horses in a rather short period of time. The focus is on adoption verses retirement to address the large number of horses leaving the track each year. Through education and adoption each horse gets a home and a purpose.
