Second Stride is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization providing professional rehabilitation, retraining, and placement for retired thoroughbred racehorses in qualified homes so that they may reach their full potential in a productive second career.
Second Stride is based on volunteers who are active in other areas of the racing industry: owners, partnership managers, handicappers, trainers. We are working to improve racing from within, and know from first hand experience how many people may have the desire to retire a horse safely, but at times find that difficult to do. We understand. We have been there, and now are doing what we can, and looking for others who can help by doing what they can.
