Looking for a horse who is used to being loved and spoiled?? This handsome gelding is clearly well loved and very used to being doted on by his owner. He has an adorable face with a kind and intelligent expression that made our volunteers note as a serious “cute factor” in his personality. Bob has been a useful race horse, earning just over $70,000 in 35 starts, but he has shown his owner that it’s time to move on to a new career, as he just hasn’t had the spark to win this year. Bob’s owner/trainer noted that he does tend to benefit from walking prior to training on the track because he sometimes starts out stiff in his hind end which has not taken well to the recent resurfacing of the track at Finger Lakes. Likely some let down time and chiropractic work would give Bob the fresh start that he needs for a second career. References will be checked, as his owner is looking for an extra special match for Bob, with lots of attention and peppermints! Bob has been turned out every winter with a herd and enjoys the relaxing atmosphere of the farm to the hectic track environment. He can be a mild stall walker in the racing shedrow (not at the farm) but he was a true gentleman in his meet and greet with our volunteers this weekend. He is by Utopia out of a Way West dam.
Asking $3,000. References are mandatory and will be checked.
