"Archie" is a 6 year old, 15.3h, gelding. Archie has just retired from racing and is now looking for his new career. We have not ridden Archie yet but will keep updates posted when we do.

UPDATE: 1/15/16 Archie has just started his retraining process. He is not sure what to expect from us yet, but is very willing and is learning to give with the bit, instead of a constant pulling. He is also learning to move off the riders leg and trying to bend more.

About Finger Lakes Thoroughbred Adoption Program, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Finger Lakes Thoroughbred Adoption Program has been in exsistence since 2004. We have a 16 stall barn and office located on the grounds of Finger Lakes RaceTrack (a first in North America) in Farmington, NY. Our mission is to give horses a second chance to be winners. All the horses in the program have either raced or trained at Finger Lakes Racetrack.
Our staff consists of Julie Smtih who is a trainer at Finger Lakes Racetrack as well as our Program Manager. Julie has been involved with horses since a very young age.
Damaris Cruz is our Barn/Volunteer Supervisor and she had been a groom at Finger Lakes Racetrack for 15 years prior to joining our team 6 years ago.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The Purple Haze Center is our barn and offices which are located at 5757 NY State Route 96 in Farmington, NY 14425. The center is open daily (year round except for Christmas Eve and Christmas day) from 9 am to 4 pm and all visitors are welcome - this helps us get the horses used to being around people on a regular basis.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a $10.00 non refundable adoption application fee, after the potential adoptor is approved (we check with their vet, require pictures of where the horse will be stabled and a general back ground/reference check is completeed), depending on the thoroughbred they ar looking at and what future career the horse can preform in - adoption fees are no charge to $1,500.00.
We follow each adopted horse for one year after adoption with 3, 6 and 12 month update paperwork required. Should the adopter stable within a 50 mile radius one of our Board Members will stop in to check on how things are going with the adoption.
