It is truly an honor to photograph and write about a horse like Smokin Hero. A true athlete with a durable body and a trying heart, he has earned over $411,000 in his 79 starts. A multiple graded stakes winner, he has 12 wins, 15 seconds, and 11 thirds on his resume. He is still very sound with no vices. He had raced just a couple days before we took his video and he showed gorgeous movement that had both FLF volunteers oohing and ahhing. We spoke with his exercise rider who said he is great to ride, moves off your leg, and goes in a natural frame. She said he is very comfortable and sensible. Horses that stay this sound and willing with his racing resume prove to be the most durable of the bunch and will hold up just as well during their second career. A very good home is essential for this very deserving and regal horse. We can really see him excelling as jumper or as an eventer and his trainer agrees. We can’t wait to follow this very classy horse’s life off the track. Perhaps he will be your 2016 RRP champion?
