DERBY DAY CELEBRATION AND RAFFLE
On the first Saturday in May, join us for the TRF's 17th annual BIG APPLE DERBY PARTY at Dorrian's Red Hand Restaurant on Manhattan's Upper East Side. For those of you who have been in attendance or contributed money in years past - thank you, and we hope to see or hear from you again this year. For those of you who weren't able to help before, we would welcome your participation this year. Even if you can't be there in person, there are still a number of ways you can be there in spirit and help with our mission. Here's how:

Sponsor a Thoroughbred
Want a horse to love but don't own a farm? The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation Sponsorship Program helps provide lifelong care for former racehorses that are unsuitable for adoption. Sponsors receive a personalized packet about their selected horse as well as updates throughout the year - and even an opportunity to meet the horse in person. Various sponsorship levels are available. There is even a "kid-friendly" sponsorship packet for youngsters.
Click here for more information on sponsorship, horses you can sponsor, and sponsor benefits. If you prefer to call the TRF about sponsorship, call (518)226-0028. Be sure to mention that you heard about this from the Derby Party website.
Contribute to the TRF
Even if you can’t sponsor a horse, your tax-deductible contribution to the TRF still makes a difference. As the finest three years olds gather in Louisville for America’s most famous horse race, there is no more fitting time to help the TRF provide a well-deserved humane retirement for thoroughbred racehorses at the end of their careers.

Finally, you can also help by telling relatives, neighbors, and colleagues about this site. We hope to make this year’s celebration bigger and better than ever. Thank you for your consideration.
