Located in a farm close to the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). Another one with a super fun name to follow him into his second career! His connections Wiggles as “a good egg” who “never does anything wrong”. They think he will make a great riding horse in a different discipline. They also feel that he would be a good choice for a junior rider or someone looking to get into the world of OTTBs (with a professional’s assistance of course). Wiggles is reported to be retiring sound and without any stall vices. We visited with him for a while in his stall and he was very sweet and personable. He seemed to enjoy all the attention! Wiggles has earned just over $47,000 in his 21 starts with 4 wins, 1 second, and 3 thirds. His trainers report that although Wiggles raced decently this year, he developed a strong dislike for the starting gate and was refusing to enter it towards the end of the year. They’re taking this as a sign that he’s ready for something new! It was a bitter cold day and the barn was surrounded by ice on the day we did his listing, so there was no safe way to take him outside for pictures and videos. Despite how cold it was, he was incredibly quiet during his photo shoot with just the lead rope hooked under his chin. The footing was extremely deep in the arena which made it challenging to get a good idea of his movement. His demeanor and personality make it totally worthwhile for a trip to the farm to meet this cutie in person! He is by Soaring Empire out of a Pure Prize mare. We think Wiggles would be another great prospect for RRP 2020! He’s had some let down time at the farm and is ready to start his next career!
