Proceeds from Hotel’s Annual “Breakfast with Santa” to Benefit Retired Thoroughbreds and Community Programs

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – June 18, 2019 – The Saratoga Hilton today announced that its 2018 “Breakfast with Santa” raised $8,185 to benefit ACTT Naturally, a local organization dedicated to transitioning retired Thoroughbreds into new careers. Underscoring their dedication to supporting local causes, Thomas Olsen, the hotel’s general manager, recently presented Valerie Buck, founder of ACTT Naturally and volunteer Bill Nizolek, with a donation check.

“The Saratoga Hilton is committed to supporting organizations doing good work within our local community and the greater Saratoga County,” said Olsen. “Horse racing is such an integral part of our lifestyle here, and we are truly proud to contribute to the good work ACTT Naturally is doing to rehabilitate and rehome these prized racehorses.”

ACTT Naturally works to transition Thoroughbreds from racing to new productive careers using the gentle techniques of natural horsemanship. Through programs, ACTT Naturally engages the horse human bond, facilitating mutual growth and positive transformation. The organization has equine assisted programs for veterans and first responders to help reduce anxiety and increase confidence through their program Hearts in Harmony and instills leadership qualities in the local youth through their Teen Leadership program.
