About the 2023 ASPCA Makeover Marketplace
The ASPCA Thoroughbred Makeover Marketplace is a one-of-a-kind shopping opportunity where shoppers can evaluate over 100 Thoroughbreds who are completing the Thoroughbred Makeover and their first year of training post-track. An online catalog is made available in advance of the Thoroughbred Makeover and horses are identified as being for sale/adoption throughout the event. Following the Thoroughbred Makeover, available horses are showcased in a special section of the Winter issue of Off-Track Thoroughbred Magazine. Arena space is designated at the Kentucky Horse Park exclusively for Marketplace trial rides, and official veterinary partner, Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, schedules coverage for pre-purchase exams.
Welcome shoppers! We are so pleased that you are considering a Thoroughbred Makeover participant for your next partner.
The ASPCA Makeover Marketplace is a unique opportunity for potential buyers and adopters in that you can:
- Take a Look: Use this catalog to identify your top choices and then watch them compete in one or two of ten different disciplines at the Kentucky Horse Park
- Take a Ride: Arrange a trial ride of your prospective partner in our dedicated trial ring. Where else can you arrange to ride diverse candidates from multiple different sellers in one trip away from home?
- and Take One Home: Bring your trailer! We will have vets on call from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute all week to perform pre-purchase exams so you can buy with confidence.
...all in one location!
Let’s Celebrate Together!

Sales of Makeover horses are a key metric in tracking the RRP's progress in pursuit of our mission to increase demand for Thoroughbreds and we want to hear from you!
