Claiborne’s commitment to quality doesn’t expire when a racehorse has finished their racing or breeding careers. The welfare of the horse is always a priority. Over the years, our partnerships with non-profits and re-homing organizations have led to numerous success stories. Through donations and teamwork, the goal is to make sure every horse that comes from Claiborne retires to a good home. Additionally, at Claiborne we’re proud to have a barn dedicated solely to retirees, a passion project of our own Dell Hancock. Geldings, pensioned broodmares and their companions are tended to daily and ensured a forever home.
In the past 5 years (2015-2019), Claiborne’s breeding/stallion operation/divisions have provided almost $100,000 in funding for Thoroughbred aftercare initiatives, including the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that accredits, inspects, and awards grants to approved aftercare organizations to retrain, retire, and rehome Thoroughbreds.
