Layup Facilities

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

Southern California

Toreador Equine (formerly called NexStar Ranch) is a well known Thoroughbred breeding, training and layup farm in Temecula, CA.

Heart Bar Farms is a family-run business. The proud owners, Kasey Kinkade and Paisley Phelps, built the farm from the ground up, beginning with six bare acres and developing it into a beautiful equestrian center. Everything at their farm was built with heart and pride. We use Heart Bar Farms for rehabbing injured horses, working with problem horses and retraining.
