The Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) has expanded the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Makeover Marketplace catalogue to include adoptable Thoroughbred Makeover prospects eligible for the 2022 competition. The catalogue also will continue to feature sport horse prospects who are offered for sale by their trainers at the conclusion of the Makeover process.
The expanded catalog is expected to include hundreds of transitioned and restarted Thoroughbreds, most of which will compete at the 2020-21 Thoroughbred Makeover this October at the Kentucky Horse Park. Up to 100 off-track prospects from non-profit organizations will be listed as well, all of which will be 2022 Makeover-eligible.
“The ASPCA Makeover Marketplace is a premier horse shopping and adoption opportunity for equestrians looking for well-started sport horse prospects,” said executive director Jen Roytz. “The Makeover provides the ultimate venue to browse multiple prospects listed in the catalog, watch them perform in competition, ride prospects, and have horses vetted on-site.”
Makeover graduates have traditionally undergone extensive preparation for the event, with former graduates having gone on to successful careers in eventing, hunter/jumper, field hunter, western performance, pleasure, and trail riding.
The catalogue will be printed as an insert in the fall issue of the RRP's Off-Track Thoroughbred Magazine, with a digital catalogue available at TBMakeover.org after August 15. Listing organizations must pre-register by July 10; horse registration will open July 15.
