Akindale is a non-proﬁt organization dedicated to the rescue, rehab, retraining and rehoming of thoroughbreds that no longer race. Located in Pawling, N.Y., Akindale is home to more than 165 racehorses that roam freely on the property’s 300 rolling acres.
“We are ‘reinventing’ racehorses. Each horse that enters our program has a haven for life here,” Akindale’s executive director Chris Andrews said in a news release.
“We offer a full-scale rest, rehab, retrain, rehome and retirement program to provide the best opportunity for a ‘second career’ for these retired racers,” she added. All the funds raised at the comedy event will support Akindale’s ongoing equine mission
