July 5, 2017—Lexington, KY – In an effort to assist in the rehoming of retired racehorses, Hagyard Pharmacy, LLC announces a new program with New Vocations, in Lexington, KY to support the needs of retired racehorses. As these horses enter the new stages of their career, Hagyard Pharmacy will provide products from their Resolvet line to better benefit the health of the horses.
Founded in 1992, New Vocations has grown into the largest racehorse adoption program in the country. Their mission to rehabilitate, retrain and rehome retired racehorses has led to the placement of over 6,000 retired Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds, with over 450 retirees entering the program each year.
“We are excited to form this partnership with New Vocations,” said Luke H. Fallon DVM, member, Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. “By combining New Vocations’ mission with Hagyard Pharmacy’s expertise and extensive knowledge of horse healthcare, we can provide products and guidance to help these equine athletes’ transition successfully to their new careers.”
“Many of the horses entering our program are in need of rehabilitation from the physical and mental rigors of racing before they begin transitional training,” said Sarah Coleman, Director of Education and Development. “By partnering with Hagyard Pharmacy, we’re able to ensure that the transition from racehorse to riding horse is a healthy and safe one.”
With a predominant focus on the Resolvet line, Hagyard will provide New Vocations with Relyne GI or Reflex HA based on their needs upon their arrival at New Vocations. In addition, Hagyard Pharmacy will also provide a healthcare adoption kit for their new owners to assist in maintaining the care of the horse.
