Medal Round enjoying his safe
retirement as a lifer with Final Furlong

FINAL FURLONG is a non-profit 501(c)3 charity (Incorporated 4/01/09), created to establish a safe and secure environment for racehorse graduates of Niall Brennan Stables and it's clients upon completion of their racing careers.  

 The goal of FINAL FURLONG is to find a caring home suitable to each horse‚Äôs ability: show, pleasure or simple retirement.   Upon arrival at FINAL FURLONG, a veterinarian will assess each horse and any infirmity or unsoundness will be treated.  The horse will then begin the "let down" process and spend a minimum of 60 days at our facility.  The horse has completed its transformation from racehorse to companion horse when it has become:
  •  relaxed
  •  physically sound
  •  carrying good condition and easy to maintain
  •  safe to handle

 will start the process of selecting a home once each horse has achieved this state.   Because each horse is a graduate of our program we will be very familiar with their attitudes, abilities, temperament and we will do our best to match horses to individuals so that everyone benefits from our program.  All horses will be free of charge to the approved adopting home.

simply wants to give these horses, who have given so much, an opportunity to excel at another career. At the same time, owners and clients will have the peace of mind of retiring their horses with the knowledge that they will be given a loving home.  Those who donate a horse to the program are asked to make a one-time donation equivilant of one month's board at the racetrack.   
Final Furlong will assume ownership of the horse immediately and cover all the expenses involved from that point on.  

Donations to our program for the care and comfort of these horses are gratefully accepted

Final Furlong also wishes to thank the following people for their continued support to our program.  Brookledge Horse Vans, Creech Horse Vans, The Sanctuary, Blacksmiths: Cole Connell  and  Steve Shepard.   We truly appreciate your expertise and kindness

Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in our program.

The horses listed below are considered our "lifers". They are happy and healthy horses but are unplacable due to racing or training injuries. Final Furlong has dedicated a 15 acre paddock to the lifers so they can safely and comfortably live our their life. They are attended to by their groom who feeds them twice daily, grooms and bathes them. Life is a good thing for these lucky guys!
