Well I got another one. Yes another off the track Thoroughbred.
You all know my boy Junior, who will be 24 at the end of this month!! I can't believe it!
Here he is being his super cute self with my 4 and 6 year old cousins. He is going to be turned into a lesson horse for them since he is having a hard time staying sound with a heavier rider. Which I don't mind. He has been pretty much retired, with a once in the blue moon ride, for the last few months. He is doing great. A grumpy old man for sure.
But he was once technically race trained. He has a tattoo but was never actually in a race. He was trained and entered, but then scratched at the last second. He just wasn't fast enough during his training.
Well now I have OTTB number two that is the same! He just arrived today. His registered name is Ballpark, but they called him Oscar. I have changed his name to Malakai aka Kai. He is not tattooed but did go through all of the race training. He was pulled as a two year old from training to grow and mature some more. This year he was put back into training and just wasn't proving himself during his workouts so they didn't even bother to race him. He just came to me instead. He was free
My trainer is good friends with his trainer at the track.
He is a Storm Cat grandson. About 15.3hh right now and 3 years old. His birthday is February 4th, 2010. Which I know doesn't matter according to JC but I actually go by my horses birthdate when aging them. He is a very typical baby and I look forward to having fun with him
