Tampa Bay Downs is proud of its affiliation with Thoroughbred Retirement of Tampa, Inc. (commonly referred to as TROT), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the safe retirement from racing of Tampa's Thoroughbreds and their rehabilitation, retraining and re-homing.
These equine athletes are valuable assets to their owners and trainers while producing results on the track. As they reach the end of their careers, it is important that they have safe retirement options where they can transition to life after racing and new vocations. This helps not only the horses but the entire racing industry.
TROT recognizes the potential and worth that retiring Thoroughbreds offer, and is able to assist them in the next phase of their lives. With the support of Tampa Bay Downs, owners, trainers and the community, we can raise awareness about the importance of Thoroughbred aftercare and make a difference in the lives of retired race horses.
