Kentucky Balancer is a densely concentrated mix for racehorses in full work, specifically developed to be used alongside oats. The mix has increased levels of key nutrients to offset the mineral deficiencies and imbalances found in traditional cereal diets.
Kentucky Balancer is high in oil and 'super fibres', in the form of sugar beet pulp, and is heavily fortified by Stamm 30® for maximum vitamin and mineral supplementation. The formulation fully complements a ration with a high inclusion of oats, and is especially designed to be fed at an intake of 2 kilograms per head per day.
It gives extra flexibility, as the oats 'top up' the energy levels, while the balancer remains constant to fortify the cereals, and add extra oil and 'super fibres' for energy.
2 kg (4.4 lbs) per head per day, then add oats to satisfy daily energy requirements.*
Always try to feed a minimum of 1.5% of bodyweight as good quality forage. e.g. 500kg horse would eat 7.5kg of hay per day.
*Feeding levels will depend on the horse’s size, body condition and work intensity.

Saracen Horse Feeds Ltd. has always been dedicated to producing nutritionally sound, innovative formulas and providing customers with accessible personal service. These commitments led Saracen to Kentucky Equine Research (KER), founded by Dr. Joe Pagan Ph.D. in 1988.
Saracen is the exclusive Kentucky Equine Research (KER) Team Member in the UK.
KER is the most prolific independent equine research center in the world, entirely committed to the advancement of breeding and athletic performance through nutrition. The aim at KER is to enhance the understanding of equine nutrition and exercise physiology, and apply this knowledge to produce healthier, more athletic horses. From its headquarters in Central Kentucky, KER conducts extensive research, and each research trial is designed to improve the health and wellbeing of horses by targeting specific problems, and finding nutritional solutions.
The collaboration has given Saracen the chance to consistently provide nutritional solutions with unique, progressive feeds that can make a real difference, along with the science to support them. RE-LEVE®, Level-Grow™ and Super Fibre Pencils are good examples of concept feeds that have been produced as joint projects.
