The Florida Thoroughbred Retirement and Adoptive Care Program (TRAC) was established in 2010 with a focus on providing rest, rehabilitation, retraining, and adoptive services to horses that previously competed at Gulfstream Park and Gulfstream Park West.

Part of Florida TRAC’s primary purpose is to start the retraining process to allow as many horses as possible to find a loving, forever home. Graduates of Florida TRAC have been retrained for a wide range of second careers, including the show ring, trail riding, eventing, therapy for children and veterans, police work, pasture companions, and much more. Adoption fees vary depending on the level of training and the potential of each individual.

Florida TRAC keeps an open line of communication with adopters throughout the lifetime of their adoptee.

Florida TRAC’s success stories include such horses as Tizrobertcharles, who after seven starts and one win is now thriving as a member of the Davie Police Department Mounted Unit, and Charming Kid, who after eight career starts and one win trained in the eventing discipline at Colorado State University and competed successfully in the Thoroughbred Makeover in Kentucky.
