What happens to race horses after they can no longer race?

    If they are well known race horses that win the Kentucky Derby or similar high profile race, they will likely be used to sire, or if female give birth to, the next generation of race horses. There is a lot of weight put on the pedigree of a race horse, and it often pays off if the race horse has a famously well performing father.

    Many horses are brought to the equine version of a ‘retirement center’ or race horse sanctuary. Many non-profit organizations try and rescue as many un-raceable horses as possible to avoid them being put down. At the sanctuary/center the horses are rehabilitated and given the opportunity to live a relaxing life. Some have even been known to enter human therapy programs.
