This Web site was created to tell the stories of the Off-the-Track Thoroughbreds Bits & Bytes Farm has sold. The Mission of Bits & Bytes Farm is to help sellers (of Thoroughbred racehorses for sale) to find buyers who have the ability to transition these horses to new careers. We offer assistance and guidance to make sure the horses we sell are successfully placed. Our Success Stories are proof that Thoroughbred racehorses make great sport horses and family members when their racing careers are over.
When a horse is purchased with the assistance of Bits & Bytes Farm, we require the new owners to stay in touch and provide us with updates. These updates are posted on our Success Stories pages so that the sellers of the horses know that their horses are doing well and have not gone back to racing or been slaughtered. The sellers care about these wonderful Thoroughbreds and they too enjoy reading about their horses' successful new careers. They often call or e-mail to thank us for finding a home for a horse they bred or trained.

Cadence Blows Town Before Hurricane Ike
We survived Hurricane Ike. Whew. I was able to get Cadence out of town and farther north before Ike hit. He has been enjoying being out in a pasture with several other horses. They’re grazing, relaxing, and enjoying the vacation – while we’ve been without power and water for a while. I was very fortunate and had my water restored on Sunday and power came back last night. Thankfully, I’ve heard from the barn and no one was injured and the horses that stayed are doing okay. Everyone is still without power, but all in good health.
Happy One Year Anniversary Missy & Loverboy!
It is hard to believe it has already been a year since Loverboy came into my life! I can still so clearly remember the first time I laid eyes on him, that sense of pure joy and wonder that I was actually realizing such a long-held…
Clever “Casper” Invents New Game – Crash through the Rails
“Casper” (Familiar Ghost) is doing very well. He’s slowly coming into frame and getting rounder. I’ve jumped him over small stuff, little x’s, and he really thinks about things. I can almost HEAR him thinking, “why jump over this stuff? I can go around it much more easily.” But he’s honest and tries, so I have no complaints! We…
Pulling Shoes No Biggie for “Icy”
