OTTB Madness- 2024

It’s March, which means many people are filling out brackets. So, why not have a bracket of off-track Thoroughbreds?

For our first ever OTTB Madness, I have randomly chosen 16 of the retired Thoroughbred racehorses that are followed by The Horse Fund. These 16 horses will “compete” in a four-round tournament to see who earns the title of champion!*

Voting will take place via an online form. On the starting day of each round, the ballot will go live at 7 am ET and will close at 10 pm ET on the ending day. I will post the winners for each bracket by the following afternoon. To find links to voting, be sure to follow us on Facebook, X/Twitter, or Instagram.

The winning off-track Thoroughbred will be featured prominently on our social media pages and will receive a bag of horse cookies.

Now that we have covered dates, voting procedures, and prizes, it’s time to announce the sixteen competitors!
