The Second Call Team
Bringing years of experience and great relationships to the table!



In 2012, a need for a dedicated off-the-track program for New Jersey racehorses became evident. Public knowledge of the need was at an all-time high with support for this horse population growing rapidly. After a series of discussions, the decision was made to create an adoption, placement, and pensioners' organization that focused exclusively on the horses racing in the state of New Jersey. A strong team of lifelong horse professionals came together to answer this "call."
