I keep seeing so many OTTB listings popping up on my News Feed, and as much as I most definitely cannot afford another horse, it’s so hard to not pick up the phone and scrape together some money! With the tracks closed down for the season, there are countless horses needing new homes before the winter. This is a great opportunity to snatch up a nice horse for little money!
Looking for a horse who has already had a bit of let down time? Look no further than Who (Legion Field – Road to Town, by Williamstown), a 2009 gelding who is available through Finger Lakes Finest in New York. Standing 16.2 hands, this guy has 14 races on his record and is said to be retired sound. His trainer has even already ridden him since coming off the track and has turned him out with other horses with no issues.
Next up is Cool Attitude, a 2010 gelding standing 16.1 hands. Cool Attitude (Cool Conductor – Here Comes Mindy, by Erin’s Tiger) is an Indiana bred who raced 16 times with two wins. He’s a lovely looking horse and evidently lives up to his name with a chill attitude. He’s available through Thoroughbred Sport Horses in Lexington, Kentucky.
Don’t let the mud fool you! Foreverearth (Seattle Fitz (ARG) – Earthrawindandfire, by Artax) is an athletic girl who is currently available through CANTER PA. She is a 2009 model and raced 21 times in her career. She’s said to be clever and willing and a very flashy and self-preserving girl who should do well out on cross country with her new owner.
