To reduce and eventually eliminate the slaughter of Thoroughbred racehorses
We are an organization on a mission to reduce, and eventually eliminate, the slaughter of retired Thoroughbred racehorses.
The US horse racing industry is a $100 billion-dollar sport. Each year millions flock to the country’s largest races—The Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes.
Unfortunately, there are still thousands of retired Thoroughbred racehorses housed off race tracks seeking homes.
Too frequently, these wonderful souls who manage to make it off the track end up at kill-pens (where horses are sold for slaughter) or in dire situations. Often, these horses end up there due to severe misunderstanding and training mismanagement.
The US racking industry is a $100 billion sport.
Only 60 to 65 percent of 20,000 Thoroughbreds born to race actually make it to their first race; and only .2 percent make it to a Grade 1 stakes race.
Only 3,000 of the 13,000 retired Thoroughbred horses end up in new homes; the remaining are left with an uncertain fate.
