NEW STRIDE ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear New Stride Friends,

New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption Society is a non-profit charitable organization that has been re-homing former thoroughbred race horses for the past 13 years. With the help of 25 passionate volunteers, we have found homes for over 140 horses since 2002, the majority of which raced at Hastings Racecourse. Just this past year alone, nine of the 11 horses we’ve supported have been successfully adopted and are thriving in their new home environments. We don’t simply take in horses and adopt them out, we provide re-habilitation and re-training and find new homes and new careers (with the appropriate adopter) for these exceptional athletes.

We are accredited through the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA), and have qualified for grants from the TAA, Thoroughbred Charities of America and Blue Horse Charities. The aforementioned groups have very rigorous application, review and approval processes.

We know how difficult the business of horse racing can be, and know that it’s for the love of the game and the love of the horses that an organization like New Stride can continue to flourish in the local community. Our BC racehorses deserve a new career or a pleasant retirement for all of the joy and excitement they provide to us, and the only way we can continue to re-train and re-house these wonderful animals is through donations.

Please consider a donation to New Stride to assist us with continuing to find race horses new homes and new careers. All donations are 100% tax deductible, and we will issue tax receipts by year-end. You can mail your cheque to New Stride Thoroughbred Adoption Society, Attention: Lois Clough, 98-248 Street, Aldergrove, BC V4W 2H1, or visit www.newstride.com and click on “Donate.”

As all-around horse lovers, I know you understand the day-to-day cost of looking after these fine animals. We have had to limit the number of horses in the program due to financial constraints, and are hopeful that with additional funds raised, we will not have to turn any horses away. On behalf of the New Stride team, I want to thank you for your consideration and also express a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported New Stride in the past.

Sincerely,

Bill Randall, President

Based in Lexington, Kentucky, the non-profit Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance accredits, inspects  and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retire, retrain and rehome Thoroughbreds  using industry-wide funding. Funded initially by seed money from Breeders’ Cup Ltd., The Jockey  Club, and Keeneland Association, the TAA is supported by owners, trainers, breeders, racetracks,  aftercare professionals and other industry groups. To date, 56 aftercare organizations supporting
more than 180 facilities across the U.S. and Canada have been granted accreditation and received  funding from the TAA. To learn more about the TAA, visit thoroughbredaftercare.org.

Dear New Stride Friends & Supporters,

Thanks to everyone to contributed to our successful New Stride Silent Auction last week at the CTHS Yearling Sale. We appreciate all the items offered by our donors. We are thankful for everyone who made a purchase, and we are grateful for our team of volunteers who helped make sure everything was ready on time, that questions about the items were answered and that the closing procedures went smoothly.

Our proceeds were even better than last year, and we raised enough funds to look after 10 horses in our program for one month.

If you missed the silent auction and wish to contribute to our efforts, please visit our website at http://www.newstride.com and click on Donate.

Thanks to everyone, and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s event!
