With the recent addition of a second barn, After the Races has some room left to grow into at both facilities. We still take horses from Turning for Home and will continue to do so, and have recently begun taking horses from New Start located at Penn National.
However, if there are trainers looking to place horses in programs such as ours, we are now capable of taking horses directly from trainers or owners from any track. In order for a horse to be placed in the After the Races program, we require full disclosure of any known injuries or issues the horse may have, their foal papers if obtainable, and a one-time donation toward the care of the horse. We are happy to take horses who are injured as long as their injuries are recoverable. A one time donation toward their care is not much more than the cost of stalls at the track or time spent in another layup facility, and comes with the assurance that the horse will receive the best care, including all necessary veterinary care and diagnostics, and be protected under contract when we find them a suitable, long-term home.
In addition to allowing horses to come in from more sources, we also are offering a few stalls up for LAYUP horses. Horses who need stall rest, limited exercise or turn-out, or have daily medical needs may be boarded with us starting at only $600 a month, depending on the need. As we have been rehabilitating Thoroughbreds now for four years through After the Races, we have seen and treated a variety of injuries and illnesses and have the experience and expertise to get the job done while keeping the horse as happy and comfortable as possible. We are also capable of administering all medications, even those required to be given IM or IV or through a catheter, and are happy to work with your vet or ours throughout the process.
