Auburn, WA - The Prodigious Fund is an organization dedicated to recognizing and supporting positive efforts made within the Thoroughbred aftercare community for the re-homing, promotion and care of retired racehorses.
The Prodigious Fund is now accepting applications for the 100-Day Trainer Challenge. Up to ten trainers will be selected to re-train an off-the-track Thoroughbred in 100 days. The horses will compete at the Thoroughbred and Half-Thoroughbred Horse Show on October 4 at Donida Farm in Auburn, WA. Applications and supporting documents are due June 1.
Professionals, amateur adults and juniors are all welcome to apply. Trainers must identify the equestrian disciplines in which they have achieved recognition, list experience working with racehorses and ex-racehorses, list references, describe the facilities where the training will take place and share additional resources demonstrating their background and experience.
The Prodigious Fund Selection Committee will consider the need for diversity of discipline, diversity of trainer background, experience and reputation of applicants, connections of applicants to respected organizations and institutions, and skill level of applicants. The committee will conduct its own research to supplement the information provided in the applications and will not share or publicize its deliberations.
