Weekly OTTB Wishlist from Cosequin: Special Someone

Valentine’s Day is next week — do you have a special someone to spend it with? No? Well, don’t worry, an evening at the barn with your horse is a perfectly acceptable way to spend Valentine’s Day amongst equestrians. Heck, even if you do have a significant other, hopefully they know by now that that’s where you’d prefer to be anyway!

Perhaps you’re looking to add a new special someone to your life? Here are three OTTBs who would love to be your Valentine:

Saham (LEMON DROP KID – TEXAS KITTY, BY FOREST WILDCAT): 2012 15.3-hand Pennsylvania-bred gelding

Saham enjoys eating hay, taking afternoon naps, and getting his hair done. He’s looking for a partner to help him be as successful in a new career as he was in his last. Saham raced in Graded Stakes races and earned $283,501 in 21 starts. While being very competitive and athletic, he’s also an absolute gentleman and is very easy-going on the ground. Under saddle, he’s forward but not hot and seems to enjoy learning how to be a riding horse.

Located in Lexington, Kentucky.

What a Hotty (FLAME THROWER – MISSBEHAVIN IHAINT, BY HAINT): 2011 16.1-hand California-bred gelding

This handsome fellow has a really nice uphill build and a super unique liver chestnut and flaxen coloring that is sure to turn heads. What a Hotty was running decently well, but he did injure a suspensory and is six weeks into lay up. His owners are willing to share all veterinary records and with a proper rehab he should be ready to excel in a second career. His connections say he has a winning personality and is a real old soul.

Located in Berkeley, California.

Naval Commission (FIELD COMMISSION – RIVERY, BY RIVERMAN): 2014 15.3-hand Florida-bred mare

“Navy” is an absolute sweetheart who retired sound, has no vices, and is totally ready to put her best foot forward in a new career. The crew at New Vocations have noticed that she responds very well to verbal praise and reassurance as well as a gentle hand. Navy has an excellent work ethic and is forward thinking. With her aim-to-please attitude and quiet personality, she seems like a great 2019 Thoroughbred Makeover prospect!

Located in Xenia, Ohio.
