Artist Jamie Wyeth Adopts 10 Racehorses In Honor Of Late Wife

Renowned artist Jamie Wyeth lost his wife of over 50 years, Phyllis Mills Wyeth, on January 14, 2019. To honor her heart and spirit, Wyeth recently adopted 10 retired racehorses from the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, who live at Pastures of Point Lookout in Chadds Ford, PA. The farm was owned by the couple for many years before being transformed into a retirement sanctuary for racehorses in 2020.

Mills Wyeth is best known for breeding and owning Union Rags, the winner of the 2012 Belmont Stakes. Many of her racehorses were trained by Graham Motion, who became a good friend of the Mills Wyeth, as did Motion’s wife, Anita. Anita is the executive director of Pastures of Point Lookout and oversaw the adoption for Wyeth.

The 10 horses Wyeth adopted are part of the Second Chances program at Wallkill Correctional Facility in Wallkill, NY. The program uses Thoroughbreds to help rehabilitate inmates and prepare them for possible employment after incarceration.
