At Save Our Sport we are first and foremost thoroughbred racing fans. Inspired by our deep passion for horse racing, we are committed to building good will through enthusiasm and honesty that promotes thoroughbred racing throughout the world.
Our grassroots movement aims to protect our sport from organizations that put their own interests ahead of racing. We foster a positive image of our animal athletes, their trainers, and caretakers to counteract the negativity of animal activists who want to shut racing down.
We are enchanted by our sport’s history and tradition, thrilled by every race we witness, and are fully convinced of what every devotee swears by and each new fan discovers first — Thoroughbred racing is the greatest two minutes in sports.
We believe in the power of sport, and the communal experience of racing to bring people from all walks of life together. We want to make racing the best it can be for everyone involved – whether they are fans old or new, industry folks, or horse owners.
We recognize making thoroughbred racing the best it can be takes more than enthusiasm. It takes a whole lot of hard work, effort, truthfulness, authenticity, and integrity too. Racing is a global business and is under constant threat from special interests who undermine our champions’ accomplishments with half-truths and misinformation.
Save Our Sport is focused on the facts. We are dedicated to dispelling rumors and falsehoods. We aim to present the truth about horse racing to our industry and community.
We believe it’s paramount to preserve the canon and culture of horse racing from being overtaken by greed and special interests. We believe that the best way to engage new fans and new owners is through telling a truthful story.
We are a self-funded organization that operates through donations and support from people who share in our beliefs and approach.
Save Our Sport knows the future of thoroughbred racing is dependent on the trust of our fans and racing teams. We are eager to help supply the foundations of truth that will carry our sport ahead.
