The Queensland Off-The-Track Program (QOTT Program) has been established to support a high-quality first transition for Standardbred and Thoroughbred horses, bred for the racing industry and domiciled in Queensland at the time of their retirement from racing or breeding activities.

To maximise aftercare outcomes for Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds, the QOTT Program will support the placement of retired racehorses into second careers, promote life after racing options and identify retirement pathways. Queensland Off-The-Track will stimulate demand for the breeds and increase awareness of their adaptability and versatility of use; provide education and support for racing industry participants and the domestic horse community to optimise racehorse aftercare; and advocate for the lifelong traceability of retired racehorses beyond their first exit from the racing industry.






Our Vision

To maximise post racing opportunities for Queensland’s racehorses by delivering a sustainable and responsible QOTT Program.
