Turning for Home is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group that has provided over 2,300 racehorses with a safe retirement since opening in May 2008. Realizing the industry’s need to protect the equine athletes who have worked so hard for their owners and trainers, the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association of Parx Racing established a true “insurance policy” for our retired Thoroughbreds. With the inception of Turning for Home, owners and trainers have a safe outlet for their retiring horses.
While the majority of our funding comes from Parx horse owners and jockeys, the PTHA, racetrack management, and the PA Horse Breeders Association, we also offer merchandise so that fans can support Turning for Home. If you are interested in purchasing any merchandise, you can visit us in our office at Parx Racing (only licensed horsemen permitted) or catch us when our volunteers have a table in the grandstand on big race days.
If you can’t make it out to see us in person, you can send us a check to Turning for Home, P. O. Box 300, Bensalem, PA 19020, or pay by credit card through our PayPal account. If you send through PayPal, make sure to include a note with the merchandise you are ordering. Don’t forget to add money for shipping: $6 for small items, or contact us for larger orders.
In addition to our own Turning for Home merchandise, a few companies have offered to donate a percentage of their sales to Turning for Home. We are proud to support these merchants, and we love their products, too!
