Step Ahead Thoroughbred Retirement, Inc. is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization established to help rehabilitate, retrain and re-home retired Thoroughbred race horses. These horses are either off-the-track or horses bred for the purpose of racing but never raced.
The unfortunate reality in the racing industry is that eventually every Thoroughbred will need a new occupation at the end of their racing career. Regrettably, not every Thoroughbred finishes their career with the ability to become a broodmare or sire. With this in mind, Thoroughbred’s can be retrained to perform a multitude of jobs.
Step Ahead Thoroughbred Retirement was established to fulfill the need for placement of unwanted off-the-track-Thoroughbreds (OTTB). Step Ahead’s goal is to transition retired Thoroughbreds from the racetrack to appropriate forever homes.
We at Step Ahead Thoroughbred Retirement see each and every Thoroughbred as an individual with varying skills that deserve the chance to join a loving family for the remainder of their lives.
