How You Can Help

All wages and administration costs of the Throughbred Rehabilitation Program are currently donated by Racing NSW, meaning that every dollar donated to the NSW TRT goes directly to the care of horses in the Program.

How To Donate A Horse

Alternatively, if you have a retired NSW Thoroughbred racehorse that you would like to donate to the Trust for admission into the Thoroughbred Retraining Program then we would love to hear from you.

  • Be a Thoroughbred filly / mare, colt / stallion or rig, gelding
