On the Memorial you will find thousands of fallen Thoroughbreds honored for their hard work as athletes in the extreme sport of horseracing. Throughout history, racehorses have captivated the crowds with their power and beauty on tracks around the world. Now memorialized, they represent their own life and valiant effort but also that of their brethren who slipped through unnoticed, unheralded, and soon forgotten. But, from the lowest ranks to the highest echelons they all share one thing in common, having perished in service to the Sport of Kings.

Thousands are listed yet the Memorial only scratches the surface of the true death toll. If we have missed a horse, please let us know. We’re forever grateful to the many citizen reporters who have helped us build this Memorial for the horses.
4/27/2017 — We added An Offering for the Horses, a new sound feature (in the right-hand column) that will change periodically. As you visit the Memorial, may you always be inspired to honor the fallen racehorses.
