Well, he was faster than somebody :) In fairness to him, we had a really nice gelding - his 2yo season he was slower than a backwards donkey.. at the end they wondered if they should just rehome him as he was so slow. As luck would have it, they gave him another chance as a 3yo - he won a listed race and placed in a group. He went on to be sold to Dubai for a pretty penny; where he finished out his career before being rehomed to his original stable lass. Sometimes they just need that bit more time :)
Well the owner that had him when he was 2 sold him. I have a copy of the sale add from the internet. They said that he was one of the smartest horses they'd ever worked with and that they though he would do well racing or barrel racing but no one ever raced him again.
