Secretariat Center
Princess Grey C, the star of Team GreyC and the Princess GreyC Chronicles, is a 4-year-old that arrived at the Secretariat Center shortly after having won her last race. A Kentucky homebred for her racing connections, she had raced several times before breaking her maiden in a claiming race just before New Year’s. Pleased with the effort and spunk of this young lady, her owners made the caring decision that she should retire a winner to a second career to prevent her being claimed away to an uncertain future. GreyC immediately caught the eye of the Secretariat’s trainer who appreciated both her willingness and courage. Partnering up, the two began to work towards becoming a team to act as ambassadors of the breed and equine aftercare at the Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) in October. As all great duos have experienced, it takes time to learn and become successful but after months of hard work and Kentucky heat, this team just keeps getting better. They have worked to conquer the obstacle course, lead the Kentucky Horse Park trail ride, and absolutely crush their training program for their competitive trail class. Which has also led to lots of laughs for staff and tour guests as GreyC ‘s love of water requires us to coax her out (not into) water with treats. Apparently she’s part seahorse? GreyC has not only become an incredibly lovely mount for her future adopter, but she has truly excelled in the role of ambassador for her breed and a shining example of how caring owners are focused on Thoroughbred aftercare. As she continues to prepare for her big performance in October, Platinum Performance products like Platinum Power and Platinum Performance CJ would help GreyC to be in the best shape and health as she goes to showcase the Thoroughbred breed, the racing industry, and the aftercare community at the RRP.

Relationship of Nominator to Nominee
Princess Grey C is the first horse that my racing stable sent to the Secretariat Center. We wanted somewhere for GreyC to go that her aftercare and safe future was the main priority. When we arrived to drop her off, we toured the facility, saw how the training programs are created, and met the entire staff. We have been able to be a part of the retraining process throughout her training and have since donated additional horses to the program. We are excited to see her grow as an ambassador for the breed and find her adoptive home in October. - Jan Martin, Breeder and Race Owner -- Jan Martin
