ReRun Inc, founded in 1996, is one of the oldest Thoroughbred adoption programs in the nation and is the largest rehab and retraining program in New York and the northeast. The focus is largely on horses coming directly off the track, primarily those retiring from New York and East Coast tracks.

ReRun operates the premier facility in New York and New England, a state-of-the-art facility with extensive rehab capabilities – taking in and adopting out more horses in the state than any other charity. ReRun also offers support and education to local schools, Pony Club, and 4H groups.

Located in the Capital Region close to major tracks and interstates, ReRun has a capacity for 50 horses and is the permanent home of many fan favorites including NY Derby winner Fox Rules and stallion Giant Surprise, who ranked seventh nationally among first-crop sires.

ReRun partners with the New York Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund, the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, and the New York Thoroughbred Breeders and takes in more than 100 horses per year, boasting a low adoption return rate of less than 2 percent. Horses adopted from ReRun have found homes with 5* eventer Ryan Wood and US Equestrian Team rider Sinead Halpin to name a few.

In 2016, ReRun received the Award of Merit from Thoroughbred Charities of America. Verified by GFAS, ReRun also operates a sanctuary farm in Maryland for a small select band of retirees.

ReRun owns the nationally renowned “Moneigh” program. Moneighs are works of art created by racehorses, both famous (such as Tapit, American Pharoah, California Chrome and Storm Cat) and the not-so-famous, and their artwork is auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting ReRun. The entire creation and marketing process is patented and copyrighted and supported by the many owners, trainers and breeding farms of participating horses.
