Welcome to CANTER Colorado


Help support one of CANTER Colorado's horses this month.

Meet: Mile High Mojo


Mojo came to CANTER Colorado in November of 2013.  He is a 5 year old 17.3 hand (yes 17.3 hands!) dark bay gelding.  He retired from racing in August.  Mojo needs to gain weight and with his size, he eats a lot (nearly a bale of hay a day).  He is doing some light training (currently walking and trotting) to help build up  his muscles slowly.


By sponsoring Mojo, the funds will help us with his feed bill. As Mojo's sponsor, you can come meet him in person in Parker, Colorado.  He loves to eat treats and be brushed. Sponsor Mojo and come see this big guy at CANTER Colorado!

Race horses win in Colorado!

We would like to personally thank Arapahoe Park and the Colorado Horseracing Association for their generous donation of $10,000 to CANTER Colorado on August 18th, 2013. We have had a tremendous experience working the trainers and owners of Arapahoe Park to help find new homes for their retiring racehorses. We look forward to the 2014 meet and continuing our passionate work.

How to list a horse with CANTER Colorado:

Volunteers are on the grounds every weekend during the meet to take photographs and information on any horse for sale at Arapahoe Park. You can schedule an appointment or stop them on the grounds in order to get your horse listed.  Volunteers may also be willing to make personal farm visits for horses not stabled at the track.  Trainers and owners can also send pictures and information directly to Jamie if none of the options listed above work.


Please note:  Horses eligible for listing on the site must be a Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, or Arabian that is currently racing or has recently raced at Arapahoe Park.  The maximum listing price for CANTER Colorado is $3199 (less than the lowest claiming price at Arapahoe) and may differ from other CANTER affiliates.


Please contact Jamie Girouard at or 773-550-9866 for more information on how to list horses available for adoption in Colorado.
