Three organizations in New York are teaming up to develop second career opportunities for retired Thoroughbred racehorses.

The New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association (THA), New York Racing Association (NYRA), and New York Thoroughbred Breeders (NYTB) announced March 16 creation of TAKE2, which is designed to expand options for retired racehorses and the demand for the breed in the horse show world.

As part of the TAKE2 program, the organizations will co-sponsor Thoroughbred-only divisions for hunters and jumpers at the Skidmore College Saratoga Classic Horse Show and Saratoga Springs Horse Show in 2012. The AA-rated horse shows will be held at Saratoga racetrack this spring.

New Jersey horsemen are also on board, and will sponsor Thoroughbred-only classes at the AA-rated Garden State Horse Show in May
