Team Update

Happy 2022 to all of our friends  in the Thoroughbred industry! the 2021 rehoming season was an incredible success with 150 race horses transitioned into new careers thrugh the Southern Belle platform. Our appreciation for the supporters who have helped make this achievement possible cannot be described in words.

As we take a breather during the racing " off season" , I want to reflect on all of the captivating Thoroughbred Race Horses who have demonstrated the utmost athleticism both on the track, as well as in their new careers as sport horses.

We are looking forward to another fabulous year of rehoming OTTB'S and hope to connect with you all upon the commencement of 2022 racing season.
