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.
