Memories From the Makeover, Presented by Kentucky Performance Product

The Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover is a once a year gathering where trainers get to showcase their OTTBs with less than a year of post-track training. With ten disciplines to choose from, there is a little something for everybody. We have rounded up some of our favorite memories from the English side of the competition in today’s Kentucky Performance Products Instagram roundup. Congratulations to the Makeover class of 2018 on another phenomenal year! Way to showcase those OTTBs!

Meet Cal-Bred Yodeling Honey and his owner Sarah. This video shows them competing in Field Hunters at the Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover. After the Finish Line is spending the week in Lexington as the Georgia B. Ridder Foundation sponsored the $2,500 Top-Scoring Cal-Bred Award in honor of After the Finish Line. Yodeling Honey retired sound after racing a total of forty-four times at Santa Anita, Los Alamitos, Mountaineer and Charlestown. His race record was: 3 firsts, 7 seconds and 5 thirds earning $32,507. His owner purchased him from someone who retrains and sells horses from the track. Known as “Superman” at the barn, Sarah says he has lived up to her expectations. Superman is a fast learner and takes everything in stride. He wants to please, he is calm, has a quiet mind and will go over any jump without hesitation. Superman is the sweetest horse that never complains. He has even taken a liking to the hounds* * * * #tbmakeover #tbmakeover2018 #retiredracehorseproject #retiredracehorseproject2018 #calbred #ottb #exracehorse #offtrackthoroughbred #retiredracehorse #horseshow #ottbsofinstagram

Congratulations to Taylor & her Cal-Bred Off Track Thoroughbred, Baker’s Acclaim. They competed in the Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover at the Kentucky Horse Park. After the Finish Line was there all week as the Georgia B.Ridder Foundation sponsored the $2,500 Cal-Bred award in honor of our charity. In training Baker bowed a tendon that ended his racing career. When Taylor saw him for sale on-line, he was one of several horses she was interested in. She and her mother drove from Washington State to California to see the horses with hopes of bringing one home. They looked at twelve OTTB’s and chose Baker’s Acclaim. Within ten minutes Taylor knew he was the horse she wanted. His personality, demeanor, conformation and build drew him to her. Baker already had six weeks of rehab and Taylor continued rehabilitating him over the winter. By April they were training for the #tbmakeover * * * * #retiredracehorseproject #ottb #retiredracehorseproject2018 #offtrackthoroughbred #exracehorse #thoroughbredaftercare #horseshow #charity #nonprofit #helpinghorses #nonprofitorganization

That's a wrap on #tbmakeover 2018! Point Load was fabulous all week, earning some excellent scores in spite of some mistakes. He is such a pleasure to work with and I can't thank @lindseyphh enough for trusting me with her horse this summer! I'm also very grateful to my sponsors @tipperary_equestrian and @butet_canada for making sure that I am outfitted in excellent safety equipment and that Wally had well fitted saddles! Also, thank you to Wally's sponsors @omega_alpha_equine and @espanasilk for making sure that he was looking and feeling his best! Can't wait for next year! #ottbsofinstagram #eventing #fieldhunting #tipperary #tipperaryequestrian #butet #butetcanada #butetfamily #selleriebutet #omegaalpha #omegaalphaequine #espanasilk #kentuckyhorsepark

Go OTTBs and Go Jumping!


Fight back against colic and digestive upset.

Neigh-Lox® Advanced provides a scientifically advanced blend of ingredients that work synergistically to maintain your horse’s digestive tract in peak condition by supporting both the gastrointestinal tissues and the beneficial bacteria that populate the gut. Maintaining a healthy digestive tract reduces the risk of colonic and gastric ulcers, colic, laminitis related to hind-gut acidosis, and oxidative stress that damages digestive tract tissues themselves. Horses with a well-balanced GI tract have good appetites, absorb more nutrients from their diets, maintain a strong immune system, and stay healthier.

The horse that matters to you matters to us®. Not sure which horse supplement best meets your horse’s needs? We are here to help. Contact Kentucky Performance Products, LLC at 859-873-2974 or visit our website at KPPusa.com.
