Weekly OTTB Wishlist from Cosequin: Home for the Holidays

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays,
For no matter how far away you roam 
When you long for the sunshine of a friendly gaze,
For the holidays — you can’t beat home, sweet home

Tamiami Trail (Bellamy Road – Seismic Shift, by Richter Scale): 2012 16.0-hand Indiana bred mare

Already restarted under saddle, “Tami” is proving to be horse that takes her work seriously and ready is learn. She’s even already been out cross country schooling and is bolding cantering through water.  Her connections at Maker’s Mark call her “a wonderful combination of analytical yet bold, sweet yet workmanlike.” Sounds like a winning attitude!

Winning Worth (Gold Market – Worth Winning, by Pembroke): 2007 15.3-hand Ohio bred gelding

Winning Worth certainly lives up to his name. With 71 starts, “Win” finished in the top three 50% of the time and raked in over $120,000. Even with eight season of racing under his girth, he hasn’t lost any of the spring in is step and has retired sound and ready for a new adventure. His handlers at New Vocations say he’s naturally curious and seems to love exploring the nooks and crannies of the farm as he adjusts to life away from the track.

Undaunted Spirit (U S Ranger – Bella Trella, by Cherokee Run): 2014 15.3-hand Kentucky bred filly

Though she might look slight, this cute three-year-old still has a bit of growing to do to fit into those withers! Thought she made decent money in her 15 career starts, she’s not as competitive as her connections would have liked her to be so they’re hoping she can find a new career to excel at. As a young horse she can still be a bit, well, spirited, but her exercise rider says she’s “an easy, pleasant ride with a good head on her shoulders.”
