Serving the Washington
Thoroughbred Industry for over 65 years
Life After Racing
Racing is a noble sport
that has existed throughout time in every country. And while Thoroughbreds
dominate the racing industry in the United States, they have achieved a high
ranking status in every other sport as well. Here we honor just a few of the
equine athletes who have overcome challenges and/or moved on to greatness in a
second career, off the track.
In every story, the
common denominator is that Thoroughbreds are exceptionally intelligent,
versatile, athletic and develop a keen sense of partnership with the person who
trains and rides them. Thank you to all who have bred, trained and given a
Thoroughbred their start in competitive sports on the track and off. A
sampling of the many success stories we have heard and received follows
We also invite you to read about
The Prodigious Fund, which was
initiated at Emerald Downs in 2008. It gives owners the opportunity to make
contributions to accredited Thoroughbred rescue, retirement and rehabilitation
facilities through a voluntary $1 per start minimum contribution from their
horsemens bookkeeper accounts.
