Blessed with agility, grace, speed, stamina and courage, Thoroughbreds are ideally suited for any number of disciplines beyond the racetrack. Thoroughbreds compete at the highest levels of international competition in eventing, show jumping and dressage, and also make outstanding hunters, steeplechasers, barrel racers and polo mounts. They are also used by mounted police patrols and recreational riders who appreciate their intelligence and versatility.
Listed below are links to the stories that demonstrate the vast array of ways Thoroughbreds can be responsibly retrained, repurposed, and rehomed when their racing careers come to an end. These stories include testimonies about successful Thoroughbreds retired from the racetrack and their second careers.
