Zayat Stables to donate percentage of Pharoah's earnings
Zayat Stables has committed to donating a percentage of American Pharoah's purse earnings for the remainder of his racing career to New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program.

Zayat Stables retires horses to New Vocations each year and is an ongoing supporter of the annual Breeders' Cup pledge, where owners and trainers opt to pledge a percentage of their Championship earnings to the aftercare program.

"We feel owning a horse is a lifelong responsibility, which is why we are happy to support New Vocations' aftercare efforts," said owner Ahmed Zayat. "We are firmly committed to the care of our horses from the moment they are born, while they are on the track and once they retire."

"We are very thankful and honored to be the recipient of the Zayat Stables generous pledge," said Anna Ford, New Vocations' Program Director. "The Zayats truly care about their horses beyond the track and we are forever grateful for their ongoing support of our program. We hope their kind gesture will encourage other owners to do the same, as we rely heavily on donations to continue to take in hundreds of retired racehorses each year and ensure their successful second careers."
