OTTBs are among the most prominently represented breed in the eventing world. Each day, hundreds of ex-racehorses find themselves at the end of their racing career and in need of a new home. Luckily, organizations such as CANTER, New Vocations, Recycled Racehorses, and many more are always on alert for new horses that are ready for second careers. Each week, we'll be bringing you a few OTTB ads that caught our eye. Keep an eye out here for your next eventing superstar!
With so many OTTB listings to sort through each week, the chinchillas are starting a savings account to take home all of the horses they love. While we aren’t quite sure they know exactly what it takes to be a horse owner, we sure do appreciate their dedication! In the meantime, check out our favorite listings from this week, and take one home with you so the chinchillas don’t have to.
Our first listing this week is a 2009 filly by the name of Opera Hall. Standing 16.2 hands, this dappled filly (Monarchos – Sweet Potato Queen, by Tactical Advantage) will certainly turn heads in her next home. She’s been retired sound after 29 career starts and is currently at Thistledown Racing awaiting her forever home. Check out Opera Hall on CANTER Ohio.
Next up is a listing from CANTER Mid Atlantic, which always has plenty of eye candy to pore over. Sorcerer’s Kid (Sorcerer’s Stone – Cailoto, by Let’s Go Blue) is a 2010 gelding standing 16.2 hands with 20 career starts. He’s currently located at Mountaineer Park in West Virginia, and his trainer believes he will make a great partner for his new owner. Check him out on CANTER Mid Atlantic.
It must just be the week of gray horses, as our final listing this week is another eye-catching gray. Johnny Meatballs (Dunkirk – Flip Cat, by Maria’s Mon) is a New Vocations horse with just two career starts. She’s a 2011 mare standing a petite 15.1 hands. She’s been declared sound for any discipline, and would be a great addition for a smaller adult looking for their next horse to bring along. Check out Johnny Meatballs on New Vocations here.
