Racing Has Ended at Suffolk Downs. Some Horses May Still Be for Sale on the Farm

 It's official: with the "no" on the casino from the Gaming Commission, Suffolk Downs officials have announced that the track will close for good at the end of this meet.


Some notes:

  • Horses offered in the Trainer Listings section are stabled at area farms, or are now racing at other venues
  • Because things change rapidly at this time of year, please call the trainer DIRECTLY--do not email CANTER with questions about when the horse is leaving, etc.  We do not have up-to-the-minute info

Good luck and happy horse shopping!

Welcome to CANTER New England!

CANTER New England will have a booth at Equine Affaire again this year! If you are looking to stock up on your CANTER merchandise, see us in the Stroh Building November 13-16.  

CANTER New England Executive Director Kim Rigolini was a guest on Post Time with the Greek Friday, September 5th from 6:00 - 6:30PM! You can click here for details.

 A trio of champions!

Support CANTER now and receive a beautiful tribute to three great fillies: Horses of the Year Rachel Alexandra, Zenyatta, and Havre de Grace!




Longtime CANTER supporter and award-winning photographer Patricia McQueen will provide this 8x12 photo to any CANTER supporter making donations of $75 or more. Patricia is a regular contributor to the Thoroughbred Times and has had photos appear in The Blood-Horse, Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred, The Horse of Delaware Valley, California Thoroughbred and others. She created this tribute to recognize the first time in history that fillies have won three consecutive Horse of the Year titles.

View the Horses Available for Adoption through CANTER NE

In addition to the horses being sold by their racing trainers, CANTER has some beautiful adoptive placement horses—several of whom have been started under saddle—waiting for great homes!

dewamere-trotting-0512 Dewamere is an adoptive horse that needs surgery for a racing-related injury.  If you would like to help Dew by contributing toward the cost of surgery, please visit our Donation page.
