CANTER Colorado's horses need your support!
Please consider being a sponsor for:


Doit's Cat -

Doits Cat 1c "Dewey" is a beautiful 15.2 hand dark bay gelding.  This unraced 3 year old, is a horse you have to meet in person to truly see how gentle he is.  He won the hearts of all of us at CANTER Colorado when we met him at the track.

He's very trusting with his handlers on the ground and doesn't seem nervous about much. Whoever adopts this guy will be getting a very special companion.  He's well put together with a nice build and a rather large head.  He has some growing to do and is currently learning about treats.

Please consider being a sponsor for Dewey.  We are in need of a halter and lead rope for him so we are not relying on our foster home's equipment.  He also needs a durable pair of bell boots. Your support is greatly appreciated and each sponsor gets a personal meet and greet opportunity.

Mile High Mojo - Mile High Mojo 2

"Mojo" is a lightly raced, beautiful 6 year old, 17.3 hand gelding who has been in our aftercare program since November, 2013.  We have treated him for ear mites that led to active ear lesions, body soreness, and a struggle with keeping weight on. 

When we find him the right home, he will have unlimited potential and thing this big guy will go on to do big things! 

Please consider being a sponsor to help us feed, rehabilitate, and provide retraining for him.  All sponsors get a chance for a personal meet and greet opportunity.

Hold The Advantage - Hold the Advantage 4

"Tex" is a 9 year old warhorse in the racing industry with more than 60 starts. Due to the amazing care of his trainer and owner, this boy retired 100% SOUND! He is over 16 hands and has a beautiful dark bay color with striking dapples. 

He's got a truly professional attitude and is currently enjoying some overdue pasture and turnout time.

Please consider sponsoring Tex to help us raise funds for his general care such as fly spray, hay, grain, and daily vitamins before his retraining begins. All sponsors get a chance for a personal meet and greet opportunity.

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.
