The Friday Show Presented By Woodbine: Tracking Off-Track Thoroughbreds

There are just a few weeks to go before this year's edition of the Retired Racehorse Project's Thoroughbred Makeover, a training competition which brings together off-track Thoroughbreds in their first year of their new careers.

Last week, the RRP released its annual report with statistics on this year's entrants. Although most people know the RRP for its work with its signature event, it also maintains and tracks information about the horses coming off the track and aiming for the Makeover each year — ages, bloodlines, number of racing starts, earnings, and more.

One of the biggest challenges in Thoroughbred aftercare is tracing horses as they leave the racetrack. We wanted to know — what can the stats on Makeover entries tell us about retiring horses?

Kristen Kovatch Bentley, communications manager for RRP, joins us on this week's Friday Show to talk about this year's numbers and what they mean.
