Thoroughbred Charities of America, a nonprofit whose mission is “to provide a better life for Thoroughbreds, both during and after their racing careers,” interviewed Earle Mack for their Winter 2016 email newsletter on proper retirement procedures for Thoroughbreds.
Mack, who has 12 horses in his racing stable, told TCA that the most important element of Thoroughbred retirement is to be aware of safety and responsibility issues. “The safety of the Thoroughbred and prudence in decision-making are most important,” he noted when asked about the best method for retiring a horse.
TCA expressed appreciation for Mack’s dedication to his horses, as well as the responsibility and dedication of other Thoroughbred owners.
