With school out for the summer and all of us eagerly planning for longer daylight hours at the barn, it’s a great time to take on a new project. If you’re not sure where to start with your OTTB search, never fear as we’re here to bring you our favorite listings of the week to provide some inspiration!
Our first listing this week is the very handsome Mar Bravo, who is currently listed with CANTER Ohio. We featured this guy’s listing in December, and we can’t believe he is still available! Mar Bravo (Marciano – Jazz Gal, by Lord Avie) is a 2008 gelding who has raced 41 times and is said to be a nice tempered gelding who is sound but does have some stiffness in his back end that he works out of. He’s ready to move on to his new career, and with looks like that he will definitely turn some heads!
This lovely looking guy is a Canadian bred gelding by the name of Aish Tamid (Purim – First Light, by Salt Lake) who was foaled in 2010 and raced just four times. Aish Tamid does have a front ankle that is bothering him that will benefit from some downtime, but he’s said to have a great personality that will do well with bonding with his new owner. Aish Tamid is available through CANTER Illinois — will he be your next four legged companion?
We’re loving the sweet face and unique markings on our last listing of the week, a 2008 gelding by the name of Tapaway (Tapit – Victory Road, by Ikari). Tapaway raced 16 times and hit the board five times, earning a total of $115,756. Tapit is a very in demand stallion in the racing world, and he seems to pass along a lot of athleticism and talent in his offspring. He is listed as suitable for a flatwork career, but he’s said to be quite unflappable and a hard worker under saddle.
