The need to find homes for horses retiring off the race track is great. After The Homestretch-Arizona was formed to fill this niche. From the idea to the reality happened in a very short time span. We applied to the State of Arizona to become a non-profit corporation and received approval July 25, 2011. Our first Board meeting was held on August 25, 2011 and we immediately applied to the IRS for our 501(c)(3) status. Within three weeks we received our IRS Determination Letter (September 15, 2011). In October we began rescuing horses who had retired from the track.
