The online auction ends June 2.

Animal Kingdom is a 5 year old son of Leroidesanimaux and  Dalicia who is now in training in England for what will be his last race before going to stud duty.

The beneficiary of the auction is a wonderful organization – ReRun, Inc. They are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping the thoroughbred, focusing on ex-race horses. ReRun has chapters in New York, New Jersey and Kentucky.  They are supported through volunteer efforts by horse racing and equestrian enthusiasts.

ReRun was founded in 1996 as a division of the Kentucky Society by two racing insiders, Shon Wylie and Lori Neagle. They saw an acute and compelling need for an organization that focused not on providing a permanent sanctuary for retired racehorses, as was the predominant model, but on rehabilitating, retraining, and adopting them out to well-suited homes. After only two years ReRun outgrew the KHS and became incorporated as its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

ReRun pioneered the concept that when Thoroughbreds’ horse racing days are over, they don’t need to be sent to auction or slaughter but can be retrained to pursue second careers in other forms of equitation while enjoying another 20+ years of companionship with their new adoptive families.

The word “MONEIGH®” came from combining the name of the famous artist, Monet, and the sound that a horse makes, a neigh. They are pieces of artwork created by horses using their muzzle, tail and hooves. Some of the greatest Thoroughbreds in racing have created MONEIGH® to raise money for ReRun. Thoroughbred artists have included Curlin, Zenyatta, Storm Cat, Shackelford, Rapid Redux, Lawyer Ron, Evening Attire, and most recently Animal Kingdom.
