Early Estimate: Over $140,000 Raised Through New Vocations Breeders’ Cup Pledge

New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program announced today that the early estimate of funds raised during their annual Breeders’ Cup Pledge will be more than $140,000. Authentic‘s win in the Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic was one of seven winning pledges during the event; Authentic’s connections, all of whom pledged, include owners Spendthrift Farm, Starlight Racing, Madaket Stables and MyRacehorse as well as trainer Bob Baffert.

Additional pledges and final donations are still being received, but the program is thrilled with the overwhelming support of the fundraiser. This marks the Pledge’s 11th year, with over $790,000 raised since 2009 and 100 percent of funds going directly to support the program’s rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming efforts.

“We are truly thrilled with the increased participation for this year’s Pledge,” said Anna Ford, New Vocations Program Director. “All of our other fundraising events had to be cancelled this year, so more than ever, we needed the Pledge to be successful and raise funds. To have seven pledged contenders win was incredible. We are very grateful for the support from all the generous owners and trainers who joined the Pledge. All of the funding raised will go directly to support our program and will allow us to serve the increasing number of horses needing aftercare.”
