What We Do

New Start Program

New Start was created by the board of directors of the Pennsylvania Horsemen’s Benevolence and Protective Association (PA HBPA).

New Start’s Adoption Committee is charged with finding qualified homes for horses that are retired from racing at Penn National Race Course.

The program is funded by a $10 dues assessment on each race starter at Penn National. Horses that race or train at Penn National are eligible for the program if they meet New Start’s requirements.
