Any Thoroughbred barrel racers?

Hello all!
Was curious to know if you or if you know of anybody that barrel races with a TB? Just wanting to know of my chances in the barrel racing world! Thanks!!

my cousins horse is part TB and i know of some people with pure bred TB's that barrel race

Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.

I knew a gal that barrel raced a OTTB... The horse would get pretty hot though. She took about 2 years of retraining before she really started to compete with the horse. That horse sure had a stride on her!!!

...no...

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

I like part TBs better for barrels. I've seen full TBs do it before though.

Well the TB that I'm reffering to is a shorter, stockier verson than your classic OTTB. He looks more like an appendix. I've seen him go and turn on a dime in the field. I think that he could do pretty well. Any info on how to get started in training?
Thanks for all the replies already!!
