Denham Blythe is happy to be a partner of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundaton (TRF) and their Second Chances program at the Blackburn Correctional Complex in Lexington, KY. Established in 1999, the TRF opened a farm at Blackburn, and shortly before the first TRF horses arrived, an old dairy barn was converted to accommodate the horses.

Today, it is one of the TRF’s largest Second Chances Farms, with about 50 horses living out their retirement years on 100 acres of prime Kentucky bluegrass at the state’s largest minimum-security prison.

The program is mutually beneficial to the offenders working in the program and the program’s thoroughbreds. The horses are well cared for and live their remaining years in a stable and nurturing environment. The offenders learn patience, a sense of empathy, trust, and responsibility, as well as valuable skills that may assist them in securing future employment.
