Jarrod’s Commando 2009 16.3 ch gelding

Our volunteers fell in love with this stately warhorse and were even more enamored after we researched his Equibase link to his breeding and race record. If warhorses are your jam, this lovely, lovely horse ticks all the boxes. His trainer just remarked that he is a “really nice” horse but that is an understatement. Jarrod has 76 starts up and down the East coast, compiling a record of 17 wins, 10 seconds and 11 thirds, exactly 50% in the money finishes. He is the kind of horse every trainer dreams of having in the shedrow! With over $227,000 in earnings, Jarrod remains sound but, having danced every dance, he has richly earned a life off the track where he can be treated like the racing royalty he is. Don’t let his age be a deterrent: Jarrod has much left to give. During our photography session Jarrod was a perfect gentleman with no fidgeting or repositioning himself. Our volunteers concurred that he is a wise, old soul with a statesmanlike demeanor that exudes class. Indeed, with a pedigree that has Forestry close up on the dam’s side and A. P. Indy on the sire’s side, we think his longevity, successful race career and elegance is a testament to his breeding.  His video just capped off our admiration, with Jarrod displaying a nice, swingy walk and a lovely, big-strided jog that covers a lot of ground. We truly believe that this horse could be a successful mount for a sporting career after some well deserved turnout. This one is special, folks. Let him take a place of honor in your barn.
