Layup Facilities

Layup Facilities

The Placement Program uses six facilities across California to provide recently retired Thoroughbreds with the rehabilitation and rest they need.

Southern California

Bradbury Equine is a short term layup facility CARMA uses for horses who need 90 days or less of rest before transitioning into the next stage of life.

Less than 10 miles from Santa Anita Park, Rancho La Fortaleza is a quiet layup facility boasting a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, on site staff and a variety of stall sizes.

Located in Apple Valley, California, Mojave Run is where the majority of  our CARMA  horses go to let down, relax and recuperate. With the sun warming the soft desert sand, the horses enjoy a herd atmosphere in a peaceful environment.

Just 15 minutes from Santa Anita Park, Pasadena Polo Club is our triage unit for our newly retired race horses who need close monitoring, confined quarters  and veterinary care. This facility offers box stalls, 12x24 fully covered wired pipe stalls  and a detailed rehabilitation routine.
