Weekly OTTB Wishlist from Cosequin: Delaware Delights

For last week’s OTTB Wishlist, we made a virtual visit to Colorado to take a peek at three good-looking horses listed by CANTER. This week we’re zipping east where there’s another lovely contingent of horses available through the Delaware-based CANTER affiliate. No matter where you are in the good ‘ol US of A there’s a former racehorse waiting for you! Here are our three picks of the week:

Not Interested (KITTEN’S JOY – DORYPHAR, BY GONE WEST): 2016 15.2-hand Kentucky-bred mare

If you think you’re interested in a horse off the track, you might just change your mind after taking a look at Not Interested. Not Interested is a nicely put together 4-year-old who has yet to finish in the top three after making 13 career starts. She was supposed to be a turf horse, but she apparently didn’t inherit her sire’s affinity for racing and there aren’t many turf races on the cards at Delaware Park either so the best course of action is for her to go on to something different. Perhaps she’ll take to the turf on the cross country course a little better?

I Won’t Dance (FREEDOM CHILD – LET’S GO WALTZING, BY CIRCULAR QUAY): 2018 15.3-hand Pennsylvania-bred mare

This filly’s name doesn’t exactly seem to bode well for dressage, but that doesn’t mean anything of course. I Won’t Dance could very well become a first phase phenom for all we know! This unraced two-year-old came back after a training run with some swelling in her ankle and with a barn full of more promising youngsters, her trainer is wants to find her another home instead of continuing on with her. Give her a little time off to heal and mature and chances are she’ll be good as new and ready to rock n’ roll in a new career.

Mackattackaronie (REDEEMED – PRECIOUS TRADE, BY SKIP AWAY): 2016 16.1-hand Maryland-bred gelding

This gorgeous gelding can run, but his trainer — who also knows the show horse world and has known Mackattackaronie his whole life — thinks he’ll be more successful off the track than on it. With a strong build and some lovely movement, we can definitely picture him succeeding as a sport horse. And not only does this guy have good looks, but he has a great personality to go with it and is a true gentleman.
