The Arc Promise Raises Funds For Retired Racehorses In France

Au-Dela Des Pistes (ADDP), the French charity that focuses on retraining racehorses when they retire from the track, is launching a new initiative to raise funds: the Arc Promise. The Promise allows owners, trainers, breeders and jockeys with a horse running on the two biggest days of French racing to pledge a percentage of any prize money they win to the charity. Thus far, Mickael Barzalona has pledged a percentage of his winnings to ADDP.

Founded in 2016, the ADDP accredits farms that meet their requirements to either retrain or provide sanctuary to retired racehorses. In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has forced owners and trainers at all levels to utilize ADDP’s services to help place horses in suitable aftercare programs.

To raise additional money, France Galop has committed a portion of funds from ticket sales be designated for the charity.
