Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows of ex-racehorses that have gone onto new careers in the state of Texas. I'm sure there are countless success stories out there, but I'm having a hard time tracking them down!

Might want to check with LOPE :)

Here's their Success page (w/link to their blog which has more info on it):

Are you looking for horses who RACED in Texas, or are in Texas now? I have 2 that raced in New Mexico but are in Texas right now.

I got my horse (in my profile pic) as a 4-year-old from Dallas Keen, a trainer based in Burleson, TX. I ultimately competed through the advanced level of eventing with that horse and now, at age 18, he's happily teaching a friend of mine to jump.
The horse and I have eventide in Texas some but lived in Colorado and now on the East Coast. In Texas, Dallas and his wife Donna now run their own nonprofit OTTB rescue, Remember Me Rescue.
