If ever there is a warhorse to wrap your heart around, this is your guy! Jet Set Cat is a friendly beloved pet, has a huge heart and work ethic, and is as sturdy as they come. He is remarkably sound and clean legged after 106 lifetime starts with 7 wins, 9 seconds and 12 thirds, notching over $168, 000 in earnings on clean, sturdy legs. Indeed, he has some of the cleanest, most blemish “track jewelry” free legs we have seen in many years of listing horses from this track! He is so well balanced, and such a lofty light mover with a beautiful rhythm — his lightness and efficiency of movement are part of the reason why he is so sound. Jet Set Cat will not be eligible to race any more next year, so his owner/trainer must reluctantly part with their beloved guy, since they have no facility at which they could keep him as a pasture pet, and they know he has so much more to give in a new career. His handler/owner told us that he is a wonderful horse to work with, with zero vices or bad habits and 100% work ethic. We admired his kind eye and beautiful conformation with an elegant neck nicely tied into his strong shoulder. Cat‘s riders love him for his manners on the track and his beautiful movement, which remains as balanced and lofty as we observed when we first listed him as a younger fellow 6 years ago for a former trainer. Cat lost an eye when he was a baby, and he is very well adapted to life as a one-eyed horse. His trainer says it has never caused him any issues, and that he is not spooky because of it. Since he has raced over 100 times in this condition, moving around in tight packs of horses, with loud noises all around him, we know that Cat is unflappable and can do anything — and that no one should pass him by for want of an eye. Trust us — this is a wonderful horse, beautiful, sweet, wise, kind, a beautiful mover, and he will be able to do anything. DO NOT let baseless prejudices against older horses, or those with physical blemishes that do not affect their heart, movement, kindness, brain, and aptitude, cause you to pass on Jet Set Cat. He is a true gem, with his boundless athleticism and soundness, good looks and hardiness, and wonderful temperament. Cat has a lot left in his tank — and he is everything that people say they want in an OTTB regardless of age. We are confident that he is going to outlast and outperform those younger, not as talented and not as wise and durable horses that get all the attention.
