This eye-catching hunk of chrome is cleverly nicknamed “Ganja.” We admired his solid bodied good looks, his flashy blaze and socks, and his friendly personality. He has had 20 races with only one win, so it is evident that racing is not his best game. He was retired sound from racing last year, and turned over to someone who wanted to retrain him as a track pony. His current owner got him this summer, after the person who had hoped to make him a track pony realized they did not have the time to properly devote to Ganja. But during his retraining, he was ridden in a western saddle, proved unflappable and a quick study, and even learned to neck rein. His current owner described him as quiet and easy to handle, with a great personality and no vices. He is clean legged and described as sound. For his jog video he showed good suspension, suggesting that dressage and eventing could be great new career options for him. We could not get a longer video because there was a lot of commotion going on around him from other horses. He is by Lightnin N Thunder, who is a son of Storm Cat out of a mare from the Hoist the Flag sire line; his dam is from the Deputy Minister sire line. Big flashy geldings with chrome who are sound and good movers are a hot commodity, and we expect the gorgeous Ganja to be very popular, so better call fast on this guy!

Note: He will soon be moved to his owner’s farm in Bloomfield NY about 15 minutes from the track, so it is important to call and make an appointment if you want to see him.
