Japan’s Third Retired Racehorse Clinic Resounding Success

Boyd Martin, a Olympic competitor for the United States in the eventing discipline, returned to Japan last week to help with the Retired Racehorse Clinic, a racehorse retraining clinic that offers participants the opportunity to lesson with world-class horseback riders who ride and train off-track Thoroughbreds.

Hosted by the National Riding Club Association of Japan (NRCAJ), the Japan Racing Association (JRA) and Godolphin, the speakers who take part in the event help participants understand the athletic potential of a Thoroughbred once it retires from the racetrack. Partner Godolphin’s Lifetime Care program focuses on finding retiring racehorses new careers.

Boyd commented on the quality of the Thoroughbreds involved in the clinic on his social media; he noted that the horses had a lot of bone and that they are built uphill.

While in Japan, Boyd also got to see the site of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, tour some of the Thoroughbred training facilities and watch horses work on an indoor track used by Godolphin’s Japanese branch in Kokkaido.
