ONE LAST RACE


Saturday, June 18

After the Finish Line is one of the charities that will receive proceeds from the ONE LAST RACE, a 5K running race and fun walk to benefit Off Track Thoroughbreds. Racers will run on a historic racetrack and through the trails of the Dupage County Forest Preserve in Wheaton, IL outside of Chicago.

Thoroughbred racehorses should not have to run “one last race” when it's time for them to retire from racing. Put your sneakers on to run the last race for them and raise money to help the horse’s transition into a second career. Please consider making a donation if you can't attend.

Join us on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at 10 am. The race takes place on the former estate of Daniel Rice who bred champion Thoroughbreds. In 1965, the Rice family won the Kentucky Derby with Lucky Debonair. Their horse Advocator placed second in the Kentucky Derby the following year.

The racing industry is supporting the running race. Racehorses, jockeys, owners, trainers, breeding farms, Off Track Thoroughbred owners and the racing media are supporting the race by taking photographs with the One Last Race sign. Racehorses supporting the race include American Pharoah, Curlin, California Chrome, Tapit, Shackelford, Songbird, Smarty Jones, Zenyatta and many more!
Information and photographs leading up to the race can be found on Facebook at One Last Race and After the Finish Line and on Twitter, @OneLastRace and @AfterFinishLine.
