Northview Stallion Station, located in Chesapeake City, Md., has partnered with Beyond The Wire to provide financial assistance for “sanctuary” horses—retired Thoroughbred racehorses that cannot move on to second careers. It is a major step forward for Maryland’s Thoroughbred aftercare program.
Northview, which stands nine stallions including Great Notion, the current leading stallion in Maryland, was launched in 1989 by the late Richard Golden, Dr. Tom Bowman, and the late Allaire DuPont. For the past few years, Golden’s son, Michael, has overseen operations at the farm. David Wade, General Manager of Northview, said Michael Golden has had a passion for retired racehorses and was looking for mechanism to generate financial support for them.
