Second Annual Thoroughbred Aftercare Summit to be Virtual

2019 Thoroughbred Aftercare Summit

The second annual Thoroughbred Aftercare Summit will take place virtually Oct. 5-6, 2020.

Offering three sessions of panel discussions, the Thoroughbred Aftercare Summit is geared toward individuals and organizations with a professional interest in the retraining and rehoming of Thoroughbreds after racing. The Summit is a free event but registration is required; sessions will be accessible via Zoom.

The Summit will offer three sessions:

  • Do More, Spend Less: Monday, October 5 at 7:00 PM ET. Sponsored by Godolphin Lifetime Care and moderated by Stephanie Church of The Horse Media Group (also streamed on Facebook as part of the RRP’s Virtual Makeover Webinar Series)
  • Fundraising in Challenging Times: Tuesday, October 6 at 2:00 PM ET
  • Accounting 101: Tips for Preparing Financials for Grant Requests: Tuesday, October 6 at 3:30 PM ET

This year’s panel discussions reflect some of the unique challenges facing aftercare organizations as well as for-profit resellers during the global COVID-19 pandemic, with the goal of helping Summit attendees create innovative solutions for everything from fundraising to herd management. Learn more about topics and panelists at the Thoroughbred Makeover website.

The Thoroughbred Aftercare Summit was first held in 2019 at the Kentucky Horse Park the day before the start of the Retired Racehorse Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium. The 2020 Summit takes place as part of the RRP’s Virtual Makeover Week, which includes other educational opportunities for Thoroughbred lovers.
