Please support other area programs and facilities that help find good new homes for former racehorses from Finger Lakes. Should you feel that you are not ready to purchase a horse directly off of the track, some of these links may be helpful in finding a OTTB for you that has had some down time or some retraining.
Finger Lakes Thoroughbred Adoption Program
Retired Racehorse Retraining Project is an excellent source of information about retraining off the track thoroughbreds. A Finger Lakes Finest horse, Solidify, was one of the featured horses in their first Trainer Challenge, and he showed how quickly a horse off the track can be retrained for a sport career.
Several of us have also found the book Beyond the Track, by Anna Ford, Program Director of the New Vocations racehorse adoption program, to be a valuable resource.
