For those of you who love the durable war horses, the ones who have danced every dance and are still sound, and who so richly deserve a great new life off the track, please step up for the beautiful and flashy Devonshire! Over his long and successful racing career, he has racked up 10 wins, 18 places, and 13 shows, for over 50% in the money finishes in 78 starts. Even though he is now working out regularly, he is letting his trainer know that he just doesn’t have the speed and racing desire he once had, so it is time to move him on to a new career. And with his size, elegance, and light lovely movement with good suspension, we can see many new disciplines in which Devonshire can excel. Devonshire did slightly tweak his tendon this spring, but he is sound on it, and is regularly breezing 4 and 5 furlongs. So his trainer is confident that he should hold up for any new discipline. We can see him as a great dressage horse, or in the hunter ring, or on the trails…. or anything!
