This past weekend, we watched Justify clinch the win in the Kentucky Derby. The Bob Baffert-trained gelding will continue the quest to win the Triple Crown by next contesting the Preakness Stakes on May 19th.
Whether or not we’ll have another Triple Crown winner remains to be seen, but for now we’ve found three lovely Thoroughbreds who would sure like to be the winner of your heart:
Warhorse alert! With 88 career starts and over $150,000 earned on the track, R Fast Cat was indeed pretty fast. He appears to have held up to the rigors of racing wonderfully and at 10 years old he’s sound and ready for his next adventure. Even though he’s no longer racing, he still loves to have a job and comes out of his stall every day ready to work. He’s a balanced, quiet gentleman who’ll surely make someone a lovely partner.
Here’s a sweetheart of a filly who seems to have a little more ‘woah’ than ‘go’ and doesn’t really have her heart set on racing. After lightly racing her in only seven starts, her connections decided she was too slow to keep in training. With that nice uphill build she could surely shine as a sport horse once she finds the right person to bond with and bring her a long — could it be you?
All the Lute was apparently not a very impressive racehorse in his lone career start last October. Despite being sound, he’s been hanging out in a field since that race enjoying some down time before beginning the transition to a second career. As you can see, All the Lute has now been restarted under saddle and in that time he’s shown to be a quiet and willing guy.
