We have been drooling over this flashy boy since the first time our volunteers saw him 2 years ago. His owner/trainer loves him dearly, but she is reluctantly willing to part with her very special horse because he has done enough on the track, and it is time to move him on to a new career. And consider the possibilities with such a tall, flashy, great moving horse! His trainer states that he is sound and is a joy to work with, with a sweet and affectionate temperament. He has held up sound over a career with 77 starts and 9 wins. But he does have an occasional flare up of cellulitis in a hind leg (perhaps due to sensitive skinned white legs and the excessive moisture and sandy grit horses on the track are exposed to). She says it seems to flare up more when the weather turns cold, so she might prefer that he go to a new home in a warmer climate. But her overall most important consideration is that he go to a home where the people have the experience and knowledge to treat the cellulitis flares when they happen. She will be very selective about the right home, and references will be required. We think “Vic” has great sport horse potential, and the pedigree to match: he is a son of Belmont winner Victory Gallop out of a mare by Halo, which is a renowned sport horse line.
