Lone Star Park Hosting Horse Fair On Saturday For Off-Track Placement Of Thoroughbreds

by | 07.04.2018 | 9:31am

Lone Star Park will host The Paddock Foundation's Fourth Annual Roses to Ribbons Old Fashioned Horse Fair Saturday, July 7. The fair begins at 10 a.m. and will wrap up at noon. The track will be dark for live racing that day. There is no charge for the event and parking is also free. Please enter through the east Grandstand entrance.

This event offers Thoroughbred racehorses ready to retire and be trained for a new career as show horses, trail horses or just as pets. The possibilities are endless for these versatile equines. The event is opened to the public and we encourage any and every one wanting to own a Thoroughbred to attend. Prospective new owners will be able to view and examine these retiring Thoroughbred horses and speak with the trainers who are offering them and privately negotiate a price. These horses will be in the saddling paddock.

There will be concessions and vendors offering items for sale, such as County Saddlery and Equine artist Joanna Zeller Quentin offering art from her Moose Pants Studio. Plus non-profits including Blue Skies Therapeutic Riding Center and The Paddock Foundation will be here. The Paddock Foundation will be holding raffles for various items throughout the event.

Thoroughbreds are beautiful and intelligent animals and we want to help them find new homes where they can thrive in a second career after they retire from racing.

The Paddock Foundation is a non-profit organization created by the Texas Thoroughbred Association to support and advance aftercare for the Thoroughbred race horse. For more information please contact the Texas Thoroughbred Association at (512) 458-6133 or visit facebook.com/thepaddockfoundation.
