OTTBs are among the most prominently represented breed in the eventing world. Each day, hundreds of ex-racehorses find themselves at the end of their racing career and in need of a new home. Luckily, organizations such as CANTER, New Vocations, Recycled Racehorses and many more are always on alert for new horses that are ready for second careers. Each week, we'll be bringing you a few OTTB ads that caught our eye in our Weekly OTTB Wishlist presented by Cosequin.
We’ll jump right into it this week with our OTTB wishlist, as we’ve got a special guy first up who desperately needs a new home before the winter sets in.
Battering Ram, known in the barn as Rambler, is 9 years old and looking for his forever home, as his owner has decided that she needs to sell him before the winter. Rambler (Perfect – Rambling Tea, by Mugatea) raced 16 times, winning once. He was retired in 2010 with no injuries and has been in light work, showing potential to be someone’s great sport horse.
Rambler is for sale for $3,000 for a quick sale, and interested parties can contact Kate Samuels at [email protected] or Becky Pocock at [email protected]. Let’s find Rambler his new home, just in time for the holidays!
Next up is an adorable 6-year-old mare by the name of Shea Ballet. Listed with CANTER Mid-Atlantic, Shea Ballet (Polish Miner – Phantom Storm, by On Target) is currently at Charles Town Track in West Virginia.
Shea Ballet raced 43 times with four wins — a war horse! She brought home $59, 825 in winnings and was retired sound with no injuries after her last race on Oct. 29.
