Former Preakness Runner Hemmingway's Key Serves New Role In Ocala
OCALA- In 2006, Hemmingway's Key finished 3rd in the Preakness Stakes, and while it's a slower pace these days for the retired two-time stakes champion, the gelding from Kinsman Stables still serves an important role in retirement.
Hemmingway's Key is one of 42 horses at Second Chance Farms, a retirement farm across the street from Lowell Correctional Insitute in Ocala.
Each day, 15 inmates have the chance to work the farm with manager John Evans, taking care of the property, the horses, and working towards a certification in Equine Care Technology.
Jennifer Barrett has worked at the farm for a year now, and has formed a special bond with Hemmingway's Key, one that helps her during a difficult time in her life.
