If you're looking for a great trail or pleasure prospect, "Lucky" has an AWESOME brain! This STOCKY mare is super sweet and enjoys working with people, being groomed and is level-headed. Lucky does not spook at new situations. We have tested her with our "flying bags", tarps, loud noises and sudden things that pop up behind and she is all class! We can see this mare riding english or western and she is RRP 2022 eligible- this would be a fantastic mare for ranch work and competitive trail! Lucky is an easy keeper who is usually barefoot, however due to the weather conditions and the ground we have placed front shoes on her for support.

This special girl comes from one of our most trusted racing connections. "Heart" is an absolutely adorable girl who loves to work in hand over obstacles, tarps and logs. Heart is neutral in the field, crossties well, is excellent for farrier, vet, etc. She is currently growing, so we recommend starting her slow in hand and increase under saddle time.

Heart's movement is lovely and this genuine and curious girl would be a wonderful on the trail or in the show ring. She would shine at the 2022 Retired Racehorse Makeover!

CAN YOU HELP?

We have some beautiful companions available for adoption or foster to approved homes within a connecting state area (4-5 hours). These companions are easy keepers, let down and acclimated to a herd and have excellent manners. Some are holding jobs as babysitters for our younger horses coming off the track. Companions are free but MUST be returned if they do not work out or cannot be cared for. Companions require an update every 30 days.

Interested in a beautiful companion? Email [email protected]

Can’t adopt? Please please SHARE! We would love to place these horses as our spaces are full and many horses are on the list to arrive to our facility for care.

Thank you once again to After the Finish Line for their generous grant supporting Capitano, our most recent (and first) intake of the year. Capitano earned half a million dollars and once stood at stud duty. He was retired to our program where he will live out his days in sanctuary. These are his first photos back in January just a few weeks ago. Unfortunately we did not obtain any additional photos as our staff were battling Covid. I actually had to socially distance and zoom in when our shipper held him (bless you Leah!)

We are so very sad to hear of the passing of Alphabet Soup who was retired at Old Friends. We were very lucky to have met him in 2019 while competing at the Thoroughbred Makeover. Soup was one of my personal favorites besides the late Cigar. Here we are at Old Friends with our son Kai. Soup was very kind.

Alphabet Soup sired TRRAC adopted horse “Souper Butterfly”.

We are starting to share from our partners at Second Call Thoroughbred Adoption and Placement the world of thoroughbred racing. Have you ever wondered why horses utilize the equipment you see on the track? Many horses utilize blinkers during racing and in some cases, a form of blinkers may be utilized in a second career.

Why Blinkers?
Typically in racing we use a few varieties of blinkers for different reasons, such as speed, paying attention and not waiting on other horses, here are the most common and their purpose.

Full cup: may or may not have holes in them, they have the most restrictive view keeping the horses solely focused on whats in front of them. If they have small holes this allows them to see when a challenger (another horse) is approcahing.

French cup: most commonly used and only cuts out a small portion the horses side view. Horses are heard bound and sometimes have a tendency to get in front and start to slow down and wait for the other horses, not ideal in racing, blinkers help to prevent this.

Cheaters: smallest of the cups and mainly used a reminder to pay attention to their job and not what is going on around them.

Extension blinkers: one side has a full blinker completely blocking their view, this is used for horses that bolt or lug in or out in turns.

I am sorry to report that we lost sweet Rosie this morning. As she seemed alright on night check, she was found hemorrhaging early this morning. Our emergency vet was called immediately and although we made every attempt to stabilize her, she was quickly declining. Initially, we thought perhaps she was slipping a foal- but that was not the case.

Several melanomas were discovered on her body and it was determined that she most likely has been suffering from cancer for quite some time and she was clearly uncomfortable and in pain. We made the decision to release her from her neglected and painful body.

To say we are devastated is an understatement. Thank you to all who donated towards her care- donations will be utilized to help with final expenses.

Happy "No Blanket" Day From Sonny!
Can't believe it's been 1 year : )
I smiles because my mum gives me carrots 🤩 TRRAC Graduate - Sonny!
To celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary and the versatility of the Thoroughbred, each month this year will highlight a different second career path our hundreds of TAA graduates have succeeded in after their racing days came to an end. Up first is Eventing (AKA "the equestrian triathlon") and TAA Grad "Beacos Disco Pants" adopted by Freya Andrews via TRRAC - Thoroughbred Retirement, Rehabilitation and Careers 3 Day Eventing originated as a cavalry test and is comprised of three phases: dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. Eventing tests horse and rider pairs in a way that the Thoroughbred is well equipped to handle, making it one of the most popular second careers for OTTBs!
We primarily focus on the evaluation, rehab and placement of Monmouth Parks thoroughbreds into an appropriate program at one of our partner farms, however there are a some that have become pensioned residents with us that require year round donations for their continued care. While we always appreciate monetary donations, we do however, also accept in-kind donations of hay, grain, blankets or any other stable or horse related items. If you would like to make a monetary donation I will link our site to do so, but if you would like to make an in-kind donation or sponsor one of our pensioners please message us. If you're looking to adopt a SCTAP horse you can check with any of our partner farms linked below! No matter how you choose to support our program we are truly grateful! All donations are tax deductible where applicable by law, as we are a 501 c3 non-profit organization.

Merry Christmas from Grand Offer - Peach - and her family! Peach is taking her selfie and frisking Santa for carrots! We love her so much.
This amazing warhorse mare retired from racing in July 2020 after 84 career starts, almost all of them at Charles Town. She was placed through our program the following month and is now adored by her new owner/adopter. 💕 🦄 JC Identity Theft Thank you TRRAC - Thoroughbred Retirement, Rehabilitation and Careers
UPDATE on Chunnel our beloved NJ bred who many of you donated to so that we could give him his well deserved retirement after earning nearly 500k in his 76 starts! He has finally been adopted out of TRRACS program to a wonderful home in PA! TRRAC - Thoroughbred Retirement, Rehabilitation and Careers

Today was Cash’s first day in this arena. I didn’t have time to ride, but I did have time to work with him. For me, it’s not always about riding him. Groundwork, spa days, hand grazing, and companionship are all important parts of horsemanship. I put Cash on the lunge line (not unusual for him but not routine) and we worked on verbal commands & using body language to communicate…walk, trot, canter, & touch. Each step executed to the left & repeated on the right. He completed these with ease, so no need to keep repeating them. Then we did ground pole work (still on the lunge line) over & center (left & right) again using verbal commands & body language. Again he completed these with ease. The real test was …will he do these things I ask…off the lunge line. So…I took the lunge line off…and sent him away. Around he went at a walk…a trot…then a canter. All by body language & voice. Then I asked him to join up. Just by a cuing him..like I did before with all the other exercises. And…he did! I couldn’t believe it! I was in shock. I asked him twice. Once left. Once right. Both times he successfully completed what I asked. I was crying. A 1,200 pound animal I was able to “control”. Not by force. Not with any cruel tools. Only my voice & body language…because I asked him to. Not force him. I still was blown away. Still crying. Then…my friend Dana Marie arrived. I invited her into the arena (safely) as I sent Cash around one more time (just to make sure I wasn’t dreaming). Again, he did as I asked…this time with an audience. Today Cash & I connected on another level. Great moments occur on the ground too. Not just on their backs. Thank you Cash for letting me know…we are doing this thing right.
