OTTB Challenge Rules
The OTTB Challenge is a competition in which trainers acquire a recently
retired racehorse and prepare it over a period not to exceed fifteen months
for competition in one or two of 5 riding sports. Formats for competition are
designed to test the quality and progress of each horse’s training.
The OTTB Challenge takes place at Prairieland Park during the Saskatchewan
Equine Expo 2021.
Mission and Goals
Saskatchewan Equine Expo created the OTTB Challenge to showcase the
trainability and talent of off-track Thoroughbreds, and to inspire trainers to
secure the futures of these animals through training. In addition to
benefiting the horses, the Challenge is intended to help individuals establish
themselves professionally or as amateurs in their respective disciplines and
to showcase local trainers.
