Being so close to the boarder, most of the unsold, broken down, unsound, old, or too-hyped OTTBS get sold at auction to meat buyers for $10-30 dollars a head. Sometimes the trainer will be gracious enough to just have the animal euthanized, but it's generally the meat truck that takes them away.

That's why we have so many rescues such as The Gold Horse Ranch, and my personal favorite- L.O.P.E. They take in and rehabilitate horses with no chance otherwise. Really a fantastic place, and if you ever get the chance, you ought to read their book. It's a great piece of work.

Both of those horses look like good potentials. The filly, with some groceries and good shoeing (typical pancake TB feet..YUCK!) could be a real event potential. The first gelding has such a nice eye. I'm glad I'm so far from NY.

and her good large "turf" feet


The gelding I just can't get past that look, the mare, she has real potential for a second career

DERP!!! Wow, do I feel stupid. I wasn't equating him with being on the track. I thought he was just a TB that had already had a relatively successful show career or something.

Never mind, retiring from the track at 11 makes much more sense LOL.

Actually, he is about an hour west of Syracuse. Closer to Rochester. Use one of the ma services and map Farmington, NY, or Canandaigua, NY. Most os these horses are in Farmington, or close, since the track is technically there.
