Message from Seller - TPR

Thoroughbred Placement Resources, Inc. was established in 2007 by Kimberly Clark, a professional horsewoman involved with Thoroughbred racing for more than 25 years as a licensed trainer, owner and exercise rider, who saw that the needs of retiring racehorses were not being met. TPR has grown from one person’s vision into an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization working out of Leighton Farm in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Our services have expanded from direct off-track placement to include comprehensive retraining on our farm; through these methods, we have transitioned and placed over 850 former racehorses into off-track careers: an average of 140 horses annually.

TPR has a three part vision for Responsible Racehorse Retirement.

» A Thoroughbred racing industry that embraces Responsible Racehorse Retirement as a core principle.

On average, 30,000 Thoroughbreds are bred in the U.S. each year for the purpose of racing. Most of them will never win even one race and the majority of them will be retired from racing by the age of 5. All but a few thousand of them are born needing a safe, sound retirement plan.


» TPR is a resource for those who wish to place and/or retrain retiring Thoroughbred racehorses.

We counsel, consult and teach others how to successfully transition, retrain and find homes for them. We help trainers and owners find new homes and lives for their retiring or retired Thoroughbred racehorses. TPR strives to improve the reputation of the Thoroughbred by providing correct information about this wonderful breed. Kimberly Clark, the founder of TPR has written a book, “New Track, New Life: A Guide to Understanding and Re-Training Your Off-Track Thoroughbred,” to promote correct training principles through better understanding of ex-racers, this book is available for free download to the public TPR offers a clinic series both at the racetrack and at the farm to teach horsemen how to better understand and train retired Thoroughbred racehorses using hands-on methods.


» We create breed ambassadors in each TPR Graduate.

Each TPR Graduate serves as an ambassador for not only the TPR Retraining Program, but for all retired racehorses. We place many retiring racers into high level competitive homes which increases visibility for Thoroughbreds and the TPR training program. TPR training techniques are proactive, using the horse's previous experience as a springboard to teach them to integrate into a new life outside of racing. On average, TPR rehomes over 140 retiring racehorses annually. An average of 35 of these horses completed a full retraining program at Leighton Farm. TPR hopes to continue that rate of retraining. We now hold exclusive OTTB shows that showcase the trainability and athleticism of this wonderful breed and at the same time raise funds to continue our work.
