Hope After Racing Thoroughbreds helps horses find a home after their racing career

A Future for Central Iowa Horses

Since 2011, HART (Hope After Racing Thoroughbreds) has worked closely with the horsemen at Prairie Meadows Racetrack in Altoona to provide Thoroughbred horses, after their racing careers are over, with a soft landing. During their careers, horses may suffer injuries or become non-competitive, resulting in an uncertain future. HART’s goal is to provide a temporary home for horses while they are rehabilitating, and receiving retraining prior to being adopted into a permanent home.
