What is an OTTB?

Spastic_Dove 10-06-2009 02:32 PM

Off the track thoroughbred.

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

ah knew it was something Thoroughbred, just call them TBs in the UK whatever they do not all TBs are bred for racing

Nope, not all TBs are bred for racing. Thats 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.
