The TRF herd has been in the headlines lately and we are excited to share what we have been up to this month.
In April, the town of Prospect, Kentucky opened up the neighborhood to 11 retired Thoroughbred racehorses from the national herd of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation. The TRF Sanctuary Farm at Chestnut Hall, located just 30 minutes from Louisville, is on 25 picturesque acres in the heart of a warm, welcoming community.
Our goal is that our horses will serve as equine ambassadors for Thoroughbred aftercare and educate racing fans and the community at large about the importance of Thoroughbred aftercare and why each and every equine athlete – regardless of their accomplishment on the track – deserve a soft landing and a peaceful way to spend their lives after their racing careers are done.
While we have not yet opened the doors to the general public yet, we are very excited to welcome visitors through Visit Horse Country beginning in Mid-May of 2021.
In the meantime, if you can’t wait for a visit – spend “Thurby” morning on Thursday, April 29 with us at Chestnut Hall from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and join In the Money Media’s Peter Fornatale for a morning of coffee, Bloody Marys and past performances while enjoying the view from the porch at the TRF Sanctuary Farm at Chestnut Hall.

We (and the horses!) hope to see you soon!
