Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center Re-Homes Record 62 Thoroughbreds In 2016

Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center

In 2016, the Maker's Mark Secretariat Center in Lexington, KY, celebrated a record number of Thoroughbreds who were re-trained and adopted through its non-profit program. The year's total of 62 re-homed off-track Thoroughbreds is an organization record.

“Thoroughbreds are timeless; they have reigned supreme in equestrian sports,” said MMSC Director Susanna Thomas. “They are smart, athletic, and big-hearted. As people are recognizing the magnificence of this beautiful breed, the demand for Thoroughbreds has skyrocketed. Giving these horses a second chance and helping them transition into a new career is a lot of work, but watching as they are adopted into new families is the most rewarding feeling.”

Located at the Kentucky Horse Park, the MMSC focuses on schooling OTTBs to a point that an amateur rider is able to continue the horse's education, and is very thorough about matching the personality of a horse and rider when considering an adoption.
