Study Examines Off-The-Track Thoroughbred Adoption Issues


Results from the study, conducted by Jill Stowe, PhD, associate professor in agricultural economics at the University of Kentucky, in conjunction with Michelle Kibler, MS and PhD candidate in agricultural and resource economics at Colorado State University, potentially have real-world implications for nonprofit organizations dedicated to rescuing, retraining, and re-homing these horses. The Equine Drug Research Council funded the study.

According to the authors, organizations can use these results to identify possible ways to reduce costs and/or maximize the number of horses they can re-home.
