February 20 Press Release
At 2pm on Saturday, February 25 at the Pennsylvania Horse World Expo in Harrisburg, three professional trainers will appear with fresh off-the-track Thoroughbreds that they met for the first time in January at the Maryland Horse World Expo. It is called the Retired Racehorse Trainer Challenge, and the public attention it has already received is extraordinary.
After five weeks of training all of the horses have excelled in their new line of work and the trainers are eager to demonstrate their new skills. "We expect a fascinating demonstration of what a racehorse can learn in a short amount of time with good training," said Steuart Pittman, founder of the nonprofit Retired Racehorse Training Project (RRTP) and organizer of the Trainer Challenge.
