Equine Racers became an official 501c3 non profit as of February 2014, however has been in operation since 2005 placing over 700 horses into new careers off the track. Equine Racers operates as 2 different functions of helping retiring racehorses. The first function being an outlet for racing Owners/Trainers to find their retiring horses new homes off the track. These horses are owned and cared for by their racing connections and reside at either the racetrack or their racing farm. I provide a service for them and their prices reflect what the racing connections are asking. These horses do not follow an adoption process and may be resold.
The second function of Equine Racers are the horses I have been able to take into my care, either from track owners that can no longer care for the horse, as well as taking horses straight from the auction into my care. These horses are put into a training program or out on lay up if needed before becoming available to the public.
I strive to help these horses make that transition into new loving homes and careers where they can be given another chance rather than end up at auctions or other racetracks where their future is vague and unclear. Being self run with minimal donations, I am not financially or physically able to care for a large amount at one time, but the ones I do have in my care, I can make sure they get the care and attention they need to become successful equine partners.
