We quarantined a TB this rescue helped facilitate in getting out of a kill pen. They were nothing short of professional to deal with, with the best interest of the horse in mind. They kept in contact with us as we did them with updates on the horses condition etc while in quarantine. They ensured that we had the horses feet done as his feet were overgrown over his shoes and paid promptly for the farrier service. We also had the opportunity to transport the rescue horse to his new owner out of state, of which they helped to facilitate that as well. Great Rescue to support. They genuinely work hard to ensure the horses have great care.
I've worked with RACE fund personally. They do a very thorough vetting and progress check on every horse they home. They keep the horses best interest first. Top notch organization!
I'm a layover farm for Racefund.. Marlene Murray is absolutely amazing.. I ended up adopting the first racefund rescue from Puerto Rico, Marlene assisted in rescuing Mynahs Boy, he's blind in one eye, a double bow on the left and a bow in the right, he payed over at my farm in Ocala Fl for 30 days before heading to Pa via NY,once there it was determined I couldn't live with out him, Racefund and Marlene then assisted again at helping to get him back down to me and his forever home . .. that is a very long story made short ...
Race fund helped bring a one eyed, double bow in the right front, single bow in the left front home from Puerto Rico.. His prognosis of a life after racing was slim to none in PR.. Heck it's slim to none here in the states.. Mynahs Boy "Rico" was just to be a layover at my farm in central Florida on his way to a rescue in Pa.. We were hesitant to load him that day but we did.. Once he arrived in Pa, we kept track of him, not quite happy with his quality of life, Race fund was contacted and they helped bring Rico to his final home in Florida.. Thanks to Marlene Murray, Race fund, and several other folks..that is a very long story made short
Jersey Joe C was retired from racing by a trainer who thought he was doing the right thing. Two years later this poor horse ended up in a kill auction. The previous trainer was contacted and immediately said that he hadn't seen a horse in two years but he wanted that horse saved. He couldn't afford the bail at that time but was willing to repay it if someone could just come up with the money to save this horse. RaceFund stepped in without hesitation and this horse is now safely back with his breeder. Those of us who try to save the warhorses of racing are forever indebted!
Fantastic non profit. Marlene genuinely cares for each and every horse she saves. This is a life long passion for her.
RACEfund is proactive, honest, and exceptionally attentive to matching horse-to-home for best long-term results. Their Board of Directors is savvy and realistic, and has an amazing network of experts and volunteers. They go beyond the call of duty for each rescue, viewing them as individuals worthy of respect, no matter what their age or condition. They invest in their decisions, seeing every case through whatever issues may arise, such as rescuing a broodmare from auction to find serious vet care was needed (and secured). They view every case as important. RACEfund also generously shares the plight of other rescue groups, including their links and needs, unselfishly. Top notch group of caring people.
I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into the RACE fund to help the horses. Such a great cause.
RACE Fund is a great rescue organization; Marlene truly cares about the best placement of the horses and will do everything to ensure they are taken care of and loved. The organization is well run with frequent checks on adopted horses.
RACEFund is doing extraordinary work helping thoroughbreds retire and transition into wonderful lives off the track, and also saving thoroughbreds that wind up in terrible predictaments like the Slaughter pipeline. Marlene is very proactive and a good facilitator; she often takes the lead and organizes the effort to help a horse. I've learned from her each time we've worked together. She and I (as well as others) have worked to help a few US-bred horses return from racing in Puerto Rico, and a few horses in desperate situation here in States (with a killbuyer). RACEFund is a shining example of what a thoroughbred Aftercare program ought to be!
