Thank you for joining Mike and his owner Jim Phillips as they make their way to the popular THOROUGHBRED MAKEOVER COMPETITION, part of the RETIRED RACEHORSE PROJECT (https://www.tbmakeover.org) at the Kentucky Horse Park, October 4 to 7, 2018.
Jim wants to boost awareness of the amazing things retired racehorses can do through this donation site.
Follow along and cheer on Jim and Mike with a donation to LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society (http://longrunretirement.com/).
100% of all donations will go LongRun and Jim will generously match all total donations up to $15,000!
Jim acquired Mike, a beautifully bred, talented 5-year-old gelding, in the fall of 2017 and the pair are a special duo. Mike has taken to his new career of eventing with gusto!
Jim and Mike will recognize donors on this site as well as provide photos and stories and updates as they train and prepare for the Amateur Eventing competitions at the Thoroughbred Makeover.
