Songbird, Arrogate Halters Raffled To Benefit Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Retirement

The Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horseman’s Association’s Turning for Home is raffling two Champion Thoroughbred racehorse halters worn by Songbird and Arrogate, on Breeders’ Cup Day Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 3 PM in the Parx Racing grandstand.

All proceeds will directly benefit the retiring racehorses of Turning for Home, which is based at Parx Racing. In 2016, Turning for Home raised $7000.00 by auctioning the stud halter of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, which helped to fund several surgeries for the program’s horses.

The Champion Halter Collection can be won for a $10.00 donation per ticket, with two chances to win! The raffle is limited to 1,000 tickets and the halter is not for resale. Tickets can be purchased at the TFH Office, at our Merchandise tables at Parx Racing, or online at https://patha.org/halter-raffle.

The first ticket pulled will be for the Songbird Halter Collection that will include the worn Songbird halter with nameplate & certificate of authenticity, a replica Songbird Cotillion Stakes saddle towel, a Songbird t-shirt, and an autographed Blood-Horse poster—all signed by jockey Mike Smith—and a framed 8” x 10” Songbird photo.

The second ticket pulled will be for the Arrogate Halter Collection, which includes the worn Arrogate halter with nameplate, certificate of authenticity and photo of Bob Baffert signing the certificate, an autographed & framed 8 x 10” Arrogate photo, a Juddmonte Farm hoodie and miscellaneous collectible magazines featuring Arrogate.

All proceeds will directly benefit the retiring racehorses of the PTHA’s Turning for Home, Inc.

Turning for Home, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that has provided nearly 2,500 former racehorses with a safe retirement. The program was created through the foresight of the PTHA, which revolutionized the model for racehorse retirement. Responding to the need for a better system that addressed the uncertain future for the retiring equine population at Parx Racing, the PTHA rallied horsemen to support the program. In 2007 Turning for Home became the first on-track retirement program at a year-round racetrack and has not turned away an eligible horse since.
