Rock Hill, NY — Eleven seasonal breedings to some of the sport’s most attractive stallions will be offered at auction on Monday (Jan. 18) at the Tattersalls Winter Mixed Sale at The Meadowlands, with 100 percent of the proceeds to benefit Standardbred aftercare organizations and facilities.
Michelle and Albert Crawford of Crawford Farms LLC have donated the nearly dozen breedings to help jumpstart the aftercare programs that are in constant need of revenue and supplies throughout the year.
“There is always a shortage of essential feed and care at the many aftercare facilities around the country. We thought that it was important to show our continued support for the retired equine athletes and to help lead the charge in establishing a consistent revenue stream that will help offset the ever-growing number of horses that are in transition,” noted Michelle Crawford. “These horses give us their all. We should all ensure that they can live out their remaining lives with dignity.”
Providing a safe and secure future for Standardbreds when their racing days are over is no easy task. The Crawfords have recognized this plight and have entered the following 11 stallion breedings in the upcoming Winter Mixed Sale at The Meadowlands.
