Run for the Ribbons Inc. is a non-profit program dedicated to improving the lives of OTTB’s (off-track Thoroughbreds) after their racing careers. It was founded in 2014 as a Thoroughbred only show series. In 2015, we expanded our show series to a Thoroughbred retraining /retirement facility and networking program.  Our retirement facility is located at Cedar Lock Farm, where our focus is rehabilitation and retraining of Thoroughbreds to ensure successful transitions into their new careers. Our networking program consists of our Trainer/Owner listings. The Trainer/Owner listings will comprise of horses that are available straight from Florida tracks and training centers. The horses in these listings are not owned by the Run for the Ribbons Inc., and prospective buyers will be responsible for contacting the current owners with any inquires about the horse. In order to build this network we have volunteers available in the Ocala area for all Thoroughbred farms, in South Florida at Gulfstream Park and in Tampa at Tampa Bay Downs.   All of the current Trainer/Owner listings can be found on our website under the News & Sales tab and on our Run for the Ribbons Thoroughbred Horse Show Facebook page.
If you are a trainer/owner looking to sell or rehome your Thoroughbred please contact us so we can arrange an appointment to take pictures, videos and get accurate, up to date listing information on your horse
