Second Call Thoroughbred Adoption and Placement Answering the call one horse at a time

501c3 Non-Profit Dedicated to New Jersey’s Retired Resources  

Our Mission

Second call is a 501c3 non-profit Thoroughbred adoption, placement and retirement program dedicated to New Jersey's off the track Thoroughbreds. Our mission is to help retired racehorses find a second career and loving home. Horses accepted into the program are evaluated, rested and rehabilitated as needed. The Thoroughbreds are then placed with qualified adopters to begin their chance at a second career.

Monmouth Park's Exclusive after care program

Second Call is the official after care program for Monmouth Park Racetrack. It is the goal of Second Call to make sure all of our retired runners are placed in appropriate homes best suited for each horses individual needs. A horse entering the program must have been stabled and raced at Monmouth Park Racetrack.

Shocking Heist

We are delighted to have a sweet and gentle girl as part of our growing family! Shocking Heist is currently recovering from a soft tissue injury and will be available for adoption once her rehab is complete.

Bell Boy

Bell Boy is a handsome silly boy who is sure to put a smile on your face. He is willing and loves to please his people. He is a beautiful mover and ready for his next adventure. To know him is to love him!



This lovely mare is a rare find in the program having come back after spending 10 years with a loving family. She'd make a great partner for someone looking for their one on partner to show or just as happy to enjoy hacking around the farm.
