Retirement and Rehoming
What is life after the racetrack!? The opportunities are endless these days for off the track thoroughbreds (OOTBs) and we take it upon ourselves to make sure that there are open doors for each and every one of them that comes to us at the end of their racing career.
Whether it is a young horse that just didn’t have “racetrack” in them or an older horse that had a race career ending injury, we like to think that there is a second career for most!

The Ologist Formula
With Jena and Katie both having an extensive background in Hunter/Jumpers and also rehoming OTTBs, they have contacts that span across the sport horse world which has served them well in rehoming. They also both have great contacts throughout the thoroughbred racing industry with trainers and owners that aim to responsibly retire their racehorses so that a second career is right around the corner.
Finding the most amazing second career home is the most important to Jena and Katie and they do not take the task lightly. Each horse deserves to have a loving home and meaningful life.
We have seen these horses go on to have success across multiple disciplines: hunter, jumper, polo, barrel racing, trail, and even companion horses. Jena and Katie aim to keep close eyes on these horses as they move through their next career as seeing a horse succeed later in life is just as rewarding.
Not all horses are suited for a second career, and it is most important to understand the difference. You will notice many farms throughout Lexington and Ocala have a field they deem “the retired field” and these typically home retired broodmares and others that may have been retired and not able to be rehomed due to injury or temperament. We have one at horseOlogy! We lovingly call them our “oldies” and they will get to live out their life with us while we give them the best care we possibly can in the meantime!
Most importantly, life is not over after the racetrack for these athletes!
