Weekly OTTB Wishlist from Cosequin: Coming from Colorado

Arapahoe Park in Aurora, Colorado is currently in the midst of its live racing season, which ends on August 26th. The track is closed to spectators due to COVID-19 restrictions, but the fine folks of CANTER Colorado are busy on the backside finding homes for horses who have left the starting gate for the last time. If you’re in the area and in the market for a new equine partner, don’t overlook what these Rocky Mountain OTTBs have to offer!

Is Dreaming Type just the type of horse you’ve been dreaming of? This three-year-old is handsome bay with a huge heart and one eye! Now, that’s probably not what you were envisioning when you were dreaming up your perfect event horse prospect, but don’t let it stop you — there have been a number of one-eyed wonders who have gone on to be competitive sport horses. Gove this good-looking guy a shot and see if you can achieve your dreams together.

Champ for Justice (CHAMP PEGASUS – EXCITING JUSTICE, BY GLITTERMAN): 2016 15.3-hand California-bred mare

Champ for Justice enjoyed racing and ran well, according to her owner — she made 23 starts and hit the board a few times — but is being retired due to her owner needing to downsize and because the next track they will be going to won’t have much in the way for races suited to her. This four-year-old has a nice build and tons of potential. She thrived being in a working program and “has the energy and passion for adventure.” Sounds like a winner to me!

Mrs. Jones (SMARTY JONES – BUFF ‘N POLISH, BY POLISH NUMBERS): 2017 15.1-hand Colorado-bred mare

There are three super fun things about this mare right off the bat: 1) You can sing a modified version of that catchy Counting Crows song “Mr. Jones” all the time (“Mrs. Jones and me … “) you know the one; 2) Her barn name is “Bridget” which is a simply brilliant reference to the long-standing rom-com favorite Bridget Jones’s Diary, and 3) she’s a daughter of the 2004 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Smarty Jones, which is pretty cool! If that isn’t enough for you, then just consider the fact that she’s a sweet young filly who’s being retired sound and ready for any second career that comes her way!
