Are you afraid to buy a horse sight unseen?

We understand. We work hard to know the personalities and soundness of the Prospect Horses we sell. We take a lot of the gamble out of buying a horse directly from the track and save you time and money, too.

Read these Prospect Horse Success Stories. These horses were all purchased from a photo and a vet check.

A quick note to let you know that Whozierhurry (Kolibri) is doing well. Everyone that takes a look at this guy thinks he is very handsome!  I am using this "downtime" to give massages (which he LOVES) and put on the bridle and saddle and generally get him used to all sorts of these new things. (But it is not seeming necessary...he lets me do anything). Everyone marvels at how quiet and well behaved he is.  He makes my 6 yo warmblood from Germany look bad!!! In fact, because he is SO good, it has made me realize I have some work to do on the other horse with her ground manners!

I have been reading some of the other success stories of horses recently sold and realized these people's experiences matched my own and I wanted to
chime in to iterate that buying from you (from another country no less) was straightforward, easy, and most importantly, resulted in gettting a wonderful horse.  You and Becky have held my hand throughout everything and
I feel like I have two new friends!  I check your website regularly and am
amazed at the quality of the horses....Like I said, after reading a few of
the other success stories, I wanted to add my two cents for anyone out there
wondering if going this route is for them.  If after reading the information on your website, they feel that an OTTB might be a good partner, I would HIGHLY recommend going through you.  Whozierhurry has the looks, temperment, build and mind that I was looking for in a prospect.  I am excited to start working with him!Thank you again!

Welcome to Bits & Bytes Farm's Prospect Horses for Sale

Our horses > prospect horses

Bits & Bytes Farm is always keeping an eye out for good prospects at the race track. We currently have several prospect horses listed. When we have prospect horses, they will be still racing or at the trainer's farm. They are not available at our farm for viewing. They are usually still at the race track. We may purchase a prospect horse in the future and train them for resale. When we offer prospects, you must remember that they are totally green and in racing condition and usually at bargain prices.

Buying a prospect horse direct from the track through Bits & Bytes Farm can save you a significant amount of frustration and money. Be aware that we have not ridden these horses and have not been involved in their training. We have seen them trotted out and raced. We make no claims as to the suitability of these horses for any discipline. It usually takes a few months away from the track for the horse's true personality and talents to make themselves known. We visit the race tracks and our favorite trainers to find quality horses for resale. We save you the time and trouble of locating a horse and learning how to buy horses off the race track.

For more information, read about "How to Buy a Prospect Horse" from Bits & Bytes Farm.

When we list that the trainer needs a stall ASAP - that horse may be gone the same day we list it or soon there after. Please call IMMEDIATELY if you are interested in a horse that is "At Risk".

Buying a horse directly off the track is a gamble. The horse can be vetted out but you still do not know if he has the mind or talent for what you want to do. But, if you have the ability, and are willing to put in the time, one of these horses might be right for you. We will have the horse vetted to your specifications - complete with x-rays if you desire - and we will get the horse off-the-track and to our farm in Canton (Atlanta), Georgia. The vet and shipping costs are in addition to the price of the horse.

Once the horse is away from the track his price goes up. We will not sell horses directly from the trainer to inexperienced riders or to children.

Still not comfortable with the process? Read a few of our Prospect Horse Success Stories to learn more.
