Nutritional Support & Feed Package
TRNT Off The Track has developed a partnership with local feed stores; Stockfeed Shop and Laucke Mills, to ensure that nutritional support and feed can be provided to newly retired racehorses.
For horses retired within the Darwin or Katherine region, new owners can visit the Stockfeed Shop where they will recieve a brief consultation regarding the best choice of feed for their newly retired Thoroughbred. The owner will be able to select three bags of feed. There are no restrictions on the type of feed selected, however, the total amount cannot exceed $160.00.
Similarly, for horses retired within the Alice Springs or Tennant Creek region, owners can visit Laucke Mills to select their feed and recieve a brief consulatation.
There is no cost to the new owner for the three bags of feed selected or the consultation.
TRNT Off The Track understands that often new owners will require more nutritional support as the horse transitions for race feed to cool feed. TRNT Off The Track is committed to providing assistance during this period, and helping ease the horses transition into retirement.
