After The Races



Rehabbing & Rehoming Thoroughbred Racehorses

After The Races


United States and Canada


After the Races is a 501(c)3 Thoroughbred rehabilitation and rehoming center located in Elkton, Maryland that takes in retiring Thoroughbred racehorses.

We combine the horse’s history from the track with a vetting on the farm so that we can then put together a rehabilitation plan for each individual horse. We also spend time transitioning the horse behaviorally to life beyond racing. As the horse is rehabilitated, we spend time evaluating the horse’s temperament and physical capabilities. When ready, we begin the retraining process for horses in the program and seek to match them up with suitable, long-term homes.

Horses come to After the Races through various backstretch programs, dedicated to finding good homes for horses still on the racetrack. We also receive horses from private owners and trainers who know the importance of finding their horse a safe place to transition as it pursues its next career. Since After the Races’ inception in late 2010, we have found an increasing desire among racing professionals to see their horses get a second chance and we could not be more excited to work with them to realize this dream.
