Old Friends at Cabin Creek, the Bobby Frankel Division, is Saratoga County’s only thoroughbred retirement farm and one of the few that will take thoroughbred stallions.
Our purpose is to provide dignified retirement for all racehorses, both known and unknown. Completely staffed by volunteers and run entirely on donations, our goal is to provide a natural, nurturing forever home to retired race horses, and offer the public an up-close and personal experience with our thoroughbred horses.
We are open to the public year round with many special events during track season.
Spend the morning with everyone’s favorite lovable loser Zippy Chippy and his BFF Red Down South. We will be auctioning a horse shoe with letter of authenticity from Zippy’s 85th race including a program from that race and photographs of Zippy with his owner and trainer Felix Monserrate. These items were donated by journalist Bill Flynn who will also be in attendance. A second auction will be for a Zippy halter with a brass name tag which Zippy will be wearing during the live auction. The winner will be photographed with Zippy and the halter at the end of the auction. These are priceless Zippy memorabilia treasures for any fan. First auction will begin at high noon.
Meet William Thomas, author of “The Legend of Zippy Chippy: Life Lessons from Horse Racing's Most Lovable Loser”. Mr. Thomas’s book can be purchased in our gift shop and he will be custom autographing books.Just for fun: Want to know more about Zippy Chippy? Look on Wikipedia!

The average cost of caring for a horse is approximately $15 per day. That amount is based on the cost of hay, grain plus regularly scheduled veterinary and farrier care. That amount increases significantly when there is serious illness or an injury or when the cost of hay and grain is affected by events beyond our control such as weather conditions, fuel costs and the economy. This amount does NOT reflect any costs associated with facility management such as grounds and building maintenance, repairs, snow removal, fencing and new construction.
We are 100% staffed by volunteers and no salaries are paid.
