We handpicked this week’s batch of OTTBs from the Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses (CANTER). This 100% volunteer run organization has placed more than 25,000 OTTBs into loving homes since its founding in 1998. Learn more about the organization and see all the OTTBs available here!
Pie Baby Pie (Fleet Foot – Pie in Sky, by Outflanker): 2012 15.2-15.3 hand Maryland-bred mare
The epitome of sweetness and light, PBP would be a great addition to any barn. Sound, no vices. She was only moderately fast and bled a little bit during her last race in 2016, so her owner retired her, basically due to the former. She was much appreciated in the barn — easy to train, excellent ground manners, smart, and enthusiastic about her work. What else can we say?
This gal has been relaxing at the farm since fall of 2016 and she’s ready for a new job. She’d be suitable for any discipline. Pics of her are at the track, owner just wanted to give her some time before placing her into a new home. Located in Easton, Maryland.
Karobushka (Strategic Mission – Best Interview, by Private Interview): 2009 15.3-hand New Jersey-bred gelding
The big “Boo Bear!” A sweet, mellow fellow, this guy has an exceptional personality that would be welcome in any barn. In fact, “kind” doesn’t even begin to describe him — he’s a happy-go-lucky sorta guy who doesn’t have a care or complaint in the world. He always has his head poking out his stall and loves to be loved; CANTER stops to see him weekly and he’s a perfect gentleman.
A lovely type with an athletic style of movement, there’s nothing this one couldn’t do, from hunters to eventing to western — this is the type of prospect that’s game for anything. He was super quiet for his listing and his connections are confident that anyone who comes out to see him will love him. Please note, he does have minor ankle rounding but CANTER has been told it is not an issue.
Double Dinnermint (Double Honor – Dinner Mint, by Formal Dinner): 2010 16-hand Florida-bred mare
This lovely girl didn’t start racing until she was 4 and has been carefully managed. Sound, no vices. A lovely flat kneed mover, her trainer says she is suitable for any sport. Snap her up now! Located at Delaware Park.
