Aligning off-track race horses with new careers
Southern Belle Thoroughbreds operates as a third-party, intermediary service, assisting in the re-homing and transitioning of racehorses into new careers. The horses represented by Southern Belle Thoroughbreds will be from either Woodbine or Fort Erie race courses, and always come from reputable trainers & owners.
Happy New Year to all of our friends in the Thoroughbred industry!
The 2023 rehoming season was an incredible success with close to 200 racehorses transitioned into new careers through the Southern Belle platform; this makes for a total of over 1000 adoptions facilitated since our 2017 inception. Our appreciation for the supporters who have helped make this achievement possible cannot be described in words.
We are beyond excited for another fabulous year of rehoming OTTB'S throughout the 2024 racing season! I look forward to connecting with you all regarding a hopeful thoroughbred adoption. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or inquiries pertaining to our process as well as the available horses. As always, updates are appreciated so please send us photos of you and your OTTB so that we can feature you on the social media pages.
