The Racing Victoria Off The Track program is dedicated to supporting and promoting retired thoroughbred racehorses.
The versatility, athleticism, striking presence and intelligence of retired racehorses makes them ideal for a number of post-racing careers, including:
The Off The Track program facilitates the placement of retired racehorses in second careers by assisting industry participants and educating the community about the post-racing options, versatility and the appropriate care and retraining required.
Racing Victoria’s Off The Track Program is able to assist with the retraining and rehoming of your retired racehorse. Please follow the steps below to submit a request:
Note: If an RV Acknowledged Retrainer is interested in retraining your horse, they will contact you directly. However, if no one commits to taking the horse on within 10 business days, it may be eligible to nominate for RV’s RESET Program - an Off The Track initiative that supports horses that have struggled to transition to a second career outside racing.
If you have any questions about submitting a request, please contact the Off The Track team via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
