Old Friends at Cabin Creek, the Bobby Frankel Division, is Saratoga County’s only thoroughbred retirement farm and one of the few that will take thoroughbred stallions.
Our purpose is to provide dignified retirement for all racehorses, both known and unknown. Completely staffed by volunteers and run entirely on donations, our goal is to provide a natural, nurturing forever home to retired race horses, and offer the public an up-close and personal experience with our thoroughbred horses.
We are open to the public year round with many special events during track season.
Tours on Saturdays are year-round
from 12:00pm – 3:00pm.
Private tours available by special appointment only.
The average cost of caring for a horse is approximately $15 per day. That amount is based on the cost of hay, grain plus regularly scheduled veterinary and farrier care. That amount increases significantly when there is serious illness or an injury or when the cost of hay and grain is affected by events beyond our control such as weather conditions, fuel costs and the economy. This amount does NOT reflect any costs associated with facility management such as grounds and building maintenance, repairs, snow removal, fencing and new construction.
We are 100% staffed by volunteers and no salaries are paid.
