Our Horses

 Step Ahead Thoroughbred Retirement was established to fulfill the need for placement of unwanted off-the-track-thoroughbreds (OTTB).  Step Ahead's goal is to transition retired thoroughbreds from the racetrack to appropriate forever homes.  We at Step Ahead see each and every Thoroughbred as an individual with varying skills that deserve the chance to join a loving family for the remainder of their lives.
