Off the track thoroughbred.

A TB that has been raced but is now retired from racing and starting a new career.

Nope, not all TBs are bred for racing. That's why we use the term OTTB to just show they were once race horses and now they are doing something else. :) They're still a thoroughbred, but its just a quick way to give more info about them.
