Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation


The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) is the largest equine sanctuary in the world devoted to the rescue, retirement, rehabilitation and retraining of Thoroughbred horses no longer able to compete on the racetrack.  

At correctional facilities in ten states, TRF operates the Second Chances Program, where inmates build life skills while participating in a vocational training program as they provide supervised care to retired horses.  Keefe currently supports the Second Chances Program with the TRF.

TRF offers a humane alternative to the dire possibilities that have long faced a great majority of ex-racehorses - neglect, abuse and slaughter.  It is a place, built on love and caring, that is befitting such noble and deserving animals.
