Run by Racing Victoria, their Off The Track (OTT) program aims to facilitate the placement of retired thoroughbred racehorses into second careers. As a result of this initiative, many former racehorses are being retrained to go on to experience success in a number of equestrian sports.
As a part of this wider programme and sponsored by Racing Victoria, a very worthwhile addition to the program at the Pryde’s EasiFeed Australian Jumping Championship this year, is the inclusion of a dedicated Off The Track Australian Championship.
Run over two two qualifying rounds and culminating in a final to be featured on the main arena on the final day of the Championship, these OTT Thoroughbreds will get their chance on centre stage to demonstrate just how adaptable and proficient at jumping these horses can be.
