Second Chance Thoroughbreds

Second Chance Thoroughbreds hand picks OTTB that have either been lightly or never raced and retired sound.

We have a special passion for the breed here at SCT.  Our goal is to take in the racing duds and give them an opportunity to learn a new career, and while we specialize in eventing, we will cater to each horse’s strength be it dressage, hunter/jumper, even trail riding.  We give them a new focus, away from the busy routine of racing to a more relaxed atmosphere.  They have time to learn to be a horse again, turned out to pasture, while Purple fence at Poplarbeing handled on a regular basis.  These horses are restarted from groundwork to riding and even showing!

Second Chance Thoroughbreds was founded on a dream of Danielle Durette Tursky’s, after she fell in love with a thoroughbred named Bailey.  Although he had never been to the track (not even bred to be a racehorse), he had the spirit and competitiveness that drove them to success at eventing.  Danielle and Bailey have competed in the South region up to the Preliminary level.  Bailey is still as competitive as ever, and is the grandpa to all the young talent that comes through Second Chance Thoroughbreds.

IMG_8885Danielle and her husband Brad Tursky have a custom designed farm located on Cotton Grove Rd in East Jackson, TN.  Along with retraining the thoroughbreds, they plan to board and teach lessons, specializing and dressage and eventing.

If you would like to board please call Danielle directly at 731-225-9117.

5yr 16.2h OTTB mare

Brought to Second Chance Thoroughbreds in September, 2014. She was ridden once and then turned out for a post racing career vacation (letdown) for 5 months!

Deputy Minister and Blushing Groom on her dam side. Fancy and easy going. This big girl is still growing, but elegant in her frame. Should excel in dressage!
