Wowza! Sometimes a horse surprises you when you are doing the research for their write up. Toasty Boy is certainly one of those. We loved our meet & greet with the exceptionally personable and super friendly Toasty Boy. We thought he was an adorable little peppermint hound. But little did we know what an awesome warhorse he is too! He’s had 74 starts with 7 wins and lifetime earnings of $105,976. And he still acts like a big, cuddle-bug baby! We were told that he is an absolute “ladies man” who loves to ham it up for all his female grooms and that he adores being groomed and fussed over. He has a solid, well-proportioned and well-balanced build. We can’t help but think that this, along with his chill personality, has helped keep him sound and feeling so good over his long and successful career. But his trainer feels that this year Toasty “just doesn’t want to be here at the track anymore”. In his five starts in 2020, he has yet to be on the boards. Don’t let his age (8) fool you, he still has plenty of go and is described as a happy horse who likes to “turn and burn”. His trainer suggested that he could “make a good little barrel horse” but felt he had the versatility to go in many different directions. We think with his cute, relaxed, movement, he’d do well in the hunter ring too. We’re told that he is “pretty calm and quiet”, good in his stall but that he will sometimes will stall walk if there is commotion, settling down again once everything is quiet. That pulling on his lead in his video at a walk, but not when he jogged? Ha! He was being a tad mischievous trying to “negotiate” a little extra grazing time with his groom, which totally cracked up this volunteer! So if you are into war horses, or dandys who fancy themselves quite a ladies man, or a peppermint hound aficionado that has plenty of get up and go, or an adorable boy who is ALL of the above, check out this cutie pie! And bring a box of Kleenex to hand out to all his grooms for when you put him in your trailer to take him home.
