Gulfstream Park will celebrate Thoroughbred Aftercare on Saturday, March 24 when it plays host to Florida TRAC Day, featuring retired horses, meet-and-greets with jockeys, dachshund races and an on-line auction.
Florida Thoroughbred Retirement and Adoptive Care (TRAC) was created in 2009 to find “forever” homes for retired Thoroughbreds. The inaugural Florida TRAC Day will begin at 8 a.m. with Breakfast at Gulfstream and continue during live racing beginning at noon.
During Breakfast at Gulfstream fans can meet Skip Away (G3), Fred Hooper (G3), Monmouth Cup (G2) and Iselin (G3) winner Valid, who earned $1 million before being sold for $15,000 at the Keeneland January Sale in 2017. Juarez, who won his first graded stakes aboard Valid, adopted the gelding when his return to the races was unsuccessful in Nebraska. Juarez will also attend Breakfast at Gulfstream.
Throughout the day Gulfstream will share stories of retired Thoroughbreds in new careers, including two recently-adopted from Florida TRAC by two-time bronze medal-winning U.S. Pan American Team rider Todd Minikus.
Florida TRAC Day will also include Dachshund races beginning at 11 a.m., and a Florida TRAC booth where those donating will receive a free t-shirt and magnet.
