We have dubbed Owen as “Mr. Adorable!” When the trainer brought Owen out to pose for his photos, all 4 of our volunteers immediately exclaimed “Adorable!!” And we just kept saying “adorable” as Owen soaked up our attention and his loving track connections told us what a wonderful horse he is. We were all immediately struck by Owen’s sense of huge presence. He’s bright bay with a dappled coat, a gorgeous forelock, and some flashy chrome who “knows that he’s beautiful”. Although it is difficult to see in the pictures, we also noticed a very unique, multiple swirl pattern that runs down his face, almost like a wish bone. He’s described as having “tons of personality” which we got to witness first-hand during our visit .The trainer and his wife told us that Owen loves their kids and their kids reciprocate that love; Owen is the horse that they “most trust” for their kids to be around and handle and play with. Owne stood kindly and was very cooperative horse during his photoshoot; he truly seemed to love having all the attention on him.
Owen has a nicely balanced build, with a long, nicely sloping shoulder and powerful hindquarters. We’re told that he has no vices or injuries. During his jog, we observed a cute, springy trot with good reach. With 46 starts to his credit, 3 wins, and 14 seconds and thirds, Owen is approaching war horse status, and he appears to be a happy, good-feeling horse that moves well, a testament to his solid structure and good care. He’s proven his durability and appears to be a happy, well-adjusted horse who is also a barn favorite. We think he will truly shine with his very own person. His potential for any new discipline is unlimited. Owen is by Khozan, who is a son of Distorted Humor out of the great racemare Delta Princess, and AP Indy daughter. Owen’s dam is by Gulch, who is the sire or grandsire of many great jumpers, including some top TB show hunters.
The adorable, beautiful, lovely moving Owen is a standout volunteer favorite for this season, and we think whoever gets him will be very fortunate indeed. Owen’s track connections care deeply about making sure their horses go to great homes that will keep in touch, so be prepared to convince them that you are the best home for Owen.
