There’s a new OTTB in Boyd’s barn! While it’s far from uncommon for riders to pick up a new horse or three this time of year (listen, we’ve added at least 3 new horses to team EN in the last month, so it’s definitely a trend), we always love to see an ex-racehorse begin its new career with a top rider. Lucky for us, Boyd’s media team is helping us follow the journey through some video updates as Boyd restarts Gold Czar for eventing.
“Remi” is a 2017 model by the prolific racer Medaglia D’Oro and out of Pleasant Review. His racing career wasn’t entirely unsuccessful — he hit the board once to win big, but otherwise would eventually leave the racing world and originally went first to another rider before Boyd laid eyes on him at a clinic with the Cheshire Hunt.
Now, the rangy 6-year-old is beginning to learn the ropes of his second career, and we can’t wait to follow along!
