Watch: Retired racehorse helping heal, teach inmates

Gulfstream Park is making history on Saturday, playing host to the 50th Clasico Internacional del Caribe for the first time. Celebrating the best of Thoroughbred racing in Latin America and the Caribbean, Gulfstream Park's Championship Meet is continuing to highlight the sport's equine athletes from all different backgrounds. 

Including Immortal Wink.

Immortal Wink began his racing career in South Florida, competed in Puerto Rico, and finally made his way to the Florida Thoroughbred Retirement and Adoptive Care (TRAC) program. He is now part of the vocational program at Second Chance Farm at Lowell Correctional Institution in Ocala, where female inmates work hands-on with retired racehorses. Immortal Wink receives top quality care while helping to teach life and vocational skills to the women in the program.

In the video above, Gulfstream television host and analyst Acacia Courtney takes a look at the program and Immortal Wink.
