We talked in this post about how Phillip Dutton and Icabad Crane pulled out all the stops at the Retired Racehorse Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover to win the $10,000 America’s Most Wanted Thoroughbred Contest, and now we have video! Watch him put four, five, six, seven and eight strides in a line of two verticals before coming back around one more time to get to clinch the win.
Icabad Crane last raced in August 2013 and started his eventing career at Beginner Novice in March. He’ll finish his season going Training level at Virginia Horse Trials later this month. Pretty cool, right? Thank you to Graham and Anita Motion for giving this horse a chance at a second career. You picked a good one!
