Gateway OTTBs lists off-track thoroughbreds (CANTER Ilinois)


Purchasers are responsible for arranging and paying for shipping a horse from the track to your location.

​We have had good luck dealing with Haulers who are members of the National Horse Carriers Association.

If you are on the East Coast, please consider hauling your horse from Illinois to Lexington, and overnighting at a layover barn before going east. Many haulers pick up regularly from Lexington.
