Weekly OTTB Wishlist: Small But Mighty

You know that here on EN we absolutely love a pocket rocket who can jump the moon! This week we were lucky enough to find three good-looking OTTBs under 16-hands. One is still racing right now, one is fresh off the track, and one has already shown some serious hops.  You know you want ’em!

Forty Fathoms (POSEIDON’S WARRIOR – CEDAR ROSE, BY STEPHEN GOT EVEN): 2015 15.2-hand Florida-bred colt

Forty Fathoms is racing fit and still leaving the starting gate at Tampa Bay Downs right now, but his connections know he’s really ready for a new career. This colt may be on the smaller side, but he’s beautifully built and should be well-suited to any second career. Being a colt he is still in tact, obviously, so you may prefer to get a little snip-snip done when you bring him home, but after that you’ll have a lovely prospect!

Located near Tampa, Florida.

On to Cincinnati (AWESOME AGAIN – CONQUEST WAR MISS, BY WAR FRONT): 2017 14.1-hand New York-bred mare

Ever dream of having the heart and athletic ability of a Thoroughbred in a pony-sized package? Here’s your chance! “Cici” is a sweet but petite mare who may be short of stature but certainly makes up for it in personality. Cici is actually missing her right eye, but that’s not stopping her from anything. She is is easy to handle and confident on the ground. Under saddle she is a forgiving ride, but has an all-business attitude.

Located in Ganesvoort, New York.

Lil Bunny Foo Foo (COLONEL JOHN – TREE PIPIT, BY WOODMAN): 2013 15.3-hand Kentucky-bred mare

Lil Bunny Foo Foo hopping through the jump course! That’s how to song goes, right? This little mare is pretty appropriately named, judging by the way she pops over these little jumps. Bunny is a really cute mover and dare I see an even cuter jumper and who ever gets their hands on this one is very lucky! Bunny is unraced and was used as a broodmare in Kentucky before coming into training for a third career through CANTER California. She’s still very green but is coming along nicely and has has made her first field trip to school cross country.

Located in Del Mar, California.
