The second annual Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover-A Marketplace and National Symposium will be held this October 4 and 5 at Pimlico Race Course. At the event, a winner will be crowned for the new “America’s Most Wanted Thoroughbred” contest. This year’s event features 10 teams of an off-track horse, a trainer and the horse’s racing connections. Follow them on the RRP website all summer long and they will compete at Pimlico this fall for a $10,000 grand prize.
RPP will announce ten teams later this month. However, in honor of the Preakness Stakes this weekend, it was released today that Phillip Dutton and 3rd place Preakness finisher Icabad Crane have been named to participate in the contest. Phillip has had Icabad Crane in training since last fall, and it will be exciting to see how far they progress together. Icabad is owned by Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Graham Motion and his wife Anita.
