    8 years old and RECENTLY retired from racing? That's a VERY long time to be on the track. I'd ask for some more info on that...because he's not in track shape and looks like he hasnt been for a while. Before purchasing I'd have a thorough pre purchas exam...including xrays.

    Aside from that he's a good looking horse. But he has a long face and a small eye...which would deter me from him. But to each their own.

    Agree with above. Spot nothing, doesn't on other photo same side. Also long face small eye. Tho the eye to me seems calm and intelligent. I would tho get your own Vet to check him as racing for 8 yrs (If you just want to amble around, not so bad), ride him there (if they won't let you - drive back home!)

    Agree with above, tho the eye sems to me intelligent. Get your vet to check him, ask to ride and handle him. If you don't feel comfortable, walk away. But only buy him if only Showing or casual competitions, or just trail riding. If he has been raced for 8 yrs, he will be pretty beat up physically.

    Just re looked at photos, 2 DIFFERENT HORSES!!! The head is different from the other, also explains the spot, and not on the other same side! Shove the the sellers off!! They are both Bays, but you look at the head from first photos, and photo of the head last photo - totally different!

    I have no idea what you are seeing. It's the same horse.

    OP - front legs look as though they've had soft tissue injuries. Back legs appear scarred. Depending on what your plans are with him, I would also recommend a PPE.

    Yes, it is the same horse. He is cute. If you like him, go for the PPE and see how it goes from there. :)
