Weekly OTTB Wishlist from Cosequin

The Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center, based at the Kentucky Horse Park, tiers its available OTTBs according to current training and future potential. At the tip-top of the heap are its Legacy Horses:

“Legacy Horses are rare jewels with the unique combination of conformation, athletic ability, brains and a superb presence. Because these horses are so unusual, their higher adoption fee will pave the way for many other horses in the MMSC program that are not of the same caliber but that also deserve to be re-schooled and rehomed.”

Two OTTBs, both 2017 Thoroughbred Makeover eligible, were recently added to the Legacy Horse roster. Let’s meet them!

Noble Cornerstone (Noble Causeway – Besige, by Polish Numbers): 17.1-hand 2011 New York bred gelding

The Secretariat Center says that it has had many nice horses come through its Horse Centered Reschooling Program over the years, but that this guy may just be the finest exemplar of a Thoroughbred that they’ve ever had grace its barn. Noble Cornerstone has it all — height, balance, conformation, brains, and most importantly, heart. A winner of $326,000 in 19 starts on the track, this spectacular horse has already proven his athleticism at the track. Whatever he does, Stone is destined to be a rock solid performer in his next career.

Arcane (Artie Schiller – Blending Element (IRE), by Great Commotion): 17-hand 2010 Kentucky bred gelding

This Legacy horse will turn your head and take your breath away upon seeing him. Arcane is big in every way — body, movement, personality and presence.

He knows it too! And like many beings who are blessed with these attributes, he uses his gifts to get what he wants. On the surface, this can be off-putting, like coming across a big black grizzly in the woods. But don’t be fooled — this proud horse is a true teddy bear inside, yearning to be loved. When he finds the right mate who offers him a consistent routine and a regular “honey-do” list, Arcane, with his exceptional abilities and outstanding presence, will be spectacular.
