Classy war horse alert! For those who are wise enough to know how wonderful the mature horses who have been there, done that, raced all over proving their heart, durability and soundness are for many years of fun in new careers, you should be jumping to bring Executive Decree into your life. His trainer describes him as a “nice class horse who knows his business.” He was oh so mellow and sensible for his photo session, paying no attention to horses next to him on a walking machine who were doing bucking twirlies as he jogged by on a loose lead. He’s big, with an uphill build and shiny coat and just enough chrome to attract attention in the show ring. He showed a big step at the walk and good push from behind at the trot. His trainer reports that he can be a bit standoffish to people he doesn’t know (although he was friendly with our volunteer) and he would love to be a one person horse who can bond with his person. If ever a horse deserved a great life settled down with his own person to bond with, it is the well traveled Executive Decree. HIs racing career of 71 starts, 8 wins, 9 seconds, and 19 thirds, has taken him to 9 states, from the Pacific Northwest, to the Southwest, to the MIdwest, to Florida, and the Northeast. His trainer reports that he is very sound; he has small osselets that are well set and have been with him for a long time, and cause no issues at all. Executive Decree has been less competitive this year, so his trainer realizes it is time to let him move on to a new career. He has no limitations and could do anything. He was bred in California, and he is by Thorn Song, a son of Unbridled’s Song out of a mare from Storm Bird/Northern Dancer and Secretariat lines. His dam is form Nureyev and Langfuhr/Danzig lines.
