Want to win some Retired Racehorse Project swag? Check out these two contests running this month from the RRP.
Thoroughbred Sport Tracker: February 3-14
The RRP is the creator of the Thoroughbred Sport Tracker, the internet’s only user-driven database tracking second career talent and accomplishments of registered Thoroughbreds. It’s free to enter your Thoroughbred in the TB Sport Tracker: users can create a profile for their horse, add photos and links to video, and share his accomplishments in his or her second career! All users need is a free RRP website user account, and they can continue to update their horse’s profile as often as they wish.
“The data people enter about their horses in the Thoroughbred Sport Tracker, such as movement, jumping ability and temperament, helps to identify trends in bloodlines, which can be exceedingly useful for those buying or selling Thoroughbreds for equestrian sports and activities,” said RRP executive director Jen Roytz. “Plus, creating a profile page for their horse is a great way for horse owners to show their OTTB pride!”
Every new profile between February 3 and midnight on February 14 will be entered in a random drawing for one of three RRP 10-year anniversary water bottles! Visit www.retiredracehorseproject.org/link-to-bloodline-brag to browse the TB Sport Tracker and enter your horse’s information.
#SireMadness Bracket Contest: February 24-29
Every March, the RRP matches up the most popular stallions in the Thoroughbred Sport Tracker in a March Madness-style bracket, bringing together the breeding and sport horse industries in a series of fan votes. This year, the RRP is adding a new twist: fans can now fill out their own brackets and post their predictions on social media for a chance to win RRP store credit!
The RRP will post the initial bracket on February 24 on Facebook, and fans can enter by posting their filled-out brackets in the replies. Any entry with a matching bracket will win the prize at the end of March! Visit www.facebook.com/RetiredRacehorseProject/ on February 24 to fill out your bracket.
