What a handsome hunk! Hero has been a good consistent racehorse, with 4 wins in 12 starts, and 2 wins this year. But his trainer wants to let him move on to a new career because he has some arthritis in his knees that can bother him for a few days after a race, so it is best to let him enjoy a less strenuous job. The trainer says he thinks Hero should be fine for a show career — and his flashy good looks will certainly stand out in a show ring. With his good suspension and engagement from behind at the trot, we can see dressage in his future. The assistant trainer who showed Hero to us says he is good to work with, can be high energy but doesn’t misbehave. He was well behaved for his photo session, and jogged politely even though there were horses galloping by on the training track right behind him. Hero is a son of Tapizar, who is by Tapit. He is out a mare by Successful Appeal, from the In Reality sire line.
