Second Call, founded in 2012, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Thoroughbred Adoption and Placement Program dedicated to New Jersey’s off-the-track Thoroughbreds.
Serving as the exclusive aftercare program for Monmouth Park, the mission is to assist and ensure that retired racehorses find a second calling and/or profession.
Thoroughbreds accepted into the program are rested, evaluated, and reacclimated. They are then transitioned to proven trainers with a financial stipend from Second Call who retrain and prepare the former race horses for their new tasks. Every effort is made to ensure successful, long-term placements.
Our business model allows us to focus specifically on the local racing jurisdiction that gives back so much to our communities. By aligning with Monmouth Park and its horsemen, we can channel all our resources and activities where they are needed the most. We feel this approach enables us to build better relationships and serve the horses and riders more effectively.
