The NTL promises to be one of the “first truly co-ed sports leagues” with both male and female jockeys competing on the same teams at multi-race competitions. (Equestrian sports are generally co-ed, but female jockeys makeup a minority of jockeys overall.) Horses will compete “month after month, year after year” to create “long-term stars” fans can root for.
“And we're going to build this around not only the fan loyalty, but about the fan experience because the NTL is not just about racing. It will be great racing and team racing, but it will be all about the festive, fun, great events that surround the NTL.”- Billy Rapaport
All the horses acquired will be owned by the league, which will grant the rights to race the horses to the teams. If a horse can no longer race and needs to be retired, the league has an agreement with the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance to be sure the horse finds a new home.
