Abacus Bloodstock - our retired and other horses

We feel that it is important to give our horses a great life, from birth, through to retirement.  Nearly 7000 racehorses retire from racing every year in the UK - many of them still at a young age, so this is why we try to breed horses that are more than just one dimensional racers, but intelligent and kind horses who enjoy new challenges and can socialise with people and other animals.  This makes them better racehorses, and also means they can have great lives after racing.

Where possible we try to find a role for these horses within the Abacus Bloodstock operation.  Otherwise we retrain them for new owners or send them to train the next generation of jockeys and stable staff.

Our non-thoroughbred horses are equally important.  They act as companions to the newly weaned foals, as schoolmasters to the yearlings, or as a means of relaxation for the staff who ride them out and compete in local shows etc.
