Off The Track

Transport Subsidy

TRNT Off The Track would like to announce that a float subsidy is now being offered for horses that are being rehomed outside of Northern Territory. We understand that not all horses are able to be re-homed here in the Territory and the need for them to travel to cooler climate is necessary for their welfare.

Float Subsidy Terms and conditions

  1. The Transport Subsidy is to be used for the purpose of rehoming a retired racehorse interstate.
  2. The racehorse must be located in the Northern Territory at the time the Transport Subsidy is applied for.
  3. The racehorse must be in the care of an TRNT licensed trainer at the time the Transport Subsidy is applied for.
