This trainer is a good horseman and honest to boot- he takes great care of his horses and does the right thing by them. This guy has size, age, temperament, and "the look"!

He's lovely Beverly but the price for a 6yr on track horse is a bit stiff when they can buy a let down re-start from you for same.:)

Bay gelding with chrome at 17 hands seems to be what everyone is looking for, though. They might just get that, or close to it. (Well, maybe not in January!) I agree, though, it seems high. I think the Canter MA horses that Jess has restarted right are around that price.

This one is the same price, but has been restarted, for those not looking for something so tall.

Oh Bev, I hate you. That is absolutely the most beautiful horse I've seen in a long time for sale off the track. I'd take him in a heartbeat if my money tree in the backyard were in service this week! :) Alas, it's down for repairs...darn...and my Mega Millions ticket didn't hit this week, either.

I absolutely love the Without Sanctions horse! The only thing that caught my eye is his racing form. 4 starts: 2nd, 1st, 3rd., then a year off, dropped to claiming $5K and finished 7th, worked once more, now retiring. Definite candidate for a very thorough vet check. Hopefully he is sound.

But a really great looking horse! I'm jealous of whoever picks this one up.

Here's a vote for Novation (and all the other great Canter horses).

A horse loved by his trainer, cared for well, and with good manners is worth a lot. And the price may reflect the trainer looking for the best home for his much loved horse. That is priceless.

When anyone adds up the costs of horse care and re-training, the prices asked of OTTBs are often such a pittance...from any point in the sale -- off the track, with retraining, and so on. Aren't OTTB "sales" often more a labor of love rather than a sound business model?!

Best withes to Novation and all the other lovely horses posted here!

I'm not keen on the horse in the first post- he looks like two horses joined together. There's something about his hind conformation that I don't like. He has a super cute face though, and a very honest eye.

Novation is VERY cute, but being in the barns of Keith Lebarron and Auwarter- aka John Mcaslin- would make me a little skeptical about the horse. The last trainer might take good care of his horses, but the two prior are very hard on their horses! He would definitley be one for a pre-purchase exam!

I guess I'm the minority here, but I'm not a big fan of the first horse. Like kookicat, I don't like his hind end and he's got a pretty long back. Plain head, thick throatlatch... not something that would catch my eye. I do like his legs, but that's just about it. I am very drawn to the grey, though, and I'm not a grey lover at all. Anyone have thoughts on his conformation?

She's gonna give him a month off cause he's pretty fit, and then we'll see how he does. Gonna go see him tomorrow!

Aw, I would love nothing more than to go buy an OTTB. But I'm a minor surgery, some lessons, and a few bux away from a horse purchase.

All I can do is enable. Sorry to see that about the trainer, though - but it's good to have my enabling come with the appropriate caveats.

BeverlyAStrauss
Jan. 12, 2011, 07:29 PM
You will find horses with very few starts with bad wheels, and horses with close to 100 starts that are totally sound- you just never know, really. Sometimes I think for the more talented ones, that have run a long time, the game is easier on them bc they ARE more talented-- therefore they are sounder-- as opposed to the slower ones who just dont have "it" and have to bust a gut (or knee or ankle) just to try to keep up.....

One of the best ways to ensure a sound horse is to find a trainer who will be honest about any problems the horse might have had....

Maybe if Novation doesn't get a home, the owner will call us- we would gladly take him into our program. Every horse that has come to us from this trainer has been sound, sensible, and adopted quickly!

Jan. 12, 2011, 07:34 PM
I like that first horse...Novation. He is my sort. I like them when their legs look that good with 20+ starts. I'm also one of those that like the higher starts...all my best horses had more than 20.

Too bad I already have too many!

deltawave
Jan. 12, 2011, 08:09 PM
I totally agree that horses with lots of starts can often be the truly rugged and durable ones. And if it were just me looking, AND I needed another horse, this one appeals to me far more than just about any other CANTER horse I've seen within the last year or so. But alas, I'm not looking for me, and everyone has a different comfort level with veteran racehorses. :)

BeverlyAStrauss
Jan. 12, 2011, 08:45 PM
and different types of horses appeal to different people- that keeps the world going round LOL. I love my old war horse and he will NEVER leave my barn, yet the person who had him off the track hated him enough to tell a dealer to come pick him up and dump him at the sale where the only one who liked him enough was buying by the pound....

Well I'M not the one, but my close friend is. I've been looking for her and saw this thread, liked Novation so forwarded his info and got looking elsewhere on there and found some others, including Without Sanctions. So she ran up and looked at a couple and wound up taking him home. I will def keep everyone updated. The weather kept me from going to her place and seeing him myself yet.

Unfortunately, there is still a chance of trouble when the trainer is up-front about everything. Many trainers and exercise riders are unaware that their horses have soundness problems. Bows, suspensories, joint effusion/chips, etc are easy to see, but other more insidious problems such as stress fractures, bone bruising, pedal osteitis, carpal bone sclerosis/lysis, occult OCD, sacroiliac problems, and juvenile spavin are not. These can be the horses that don't seem obviously lame, but cannot perform to expectations. I have purchased more than my share of "sound" horses from trainer friends, and other trainers that were more than willing to share the horses' medical records with me, that turned out to have significant problems that may or may not resolve with time. Some of those problems will surface on a prepurchase exam, and others will not unless it is extremely thorough and conducted by veterinarians that are really looking for them. Even then, it could be missed or attributed to body soreness, especially if the problem is bilateral and not associated with obvious head nods/hip hikes. Honestly, I have come to be particularly suspicious of the "perfectly sound" ones, especially the young ones - sometimes it just means that it will take a bone scan or MRI to uncover their problems as opposed to routine rads or ultrasound!

I do not say this to discourage anyone from buying an OTTB - they are the only kind of horse I have ever owned - but to foster a sense of realism regarding their purchase. We often get lucky, even without a prepurchase exam, but that is not always the case. The experienced folks know this well, but at the risk of stating the obvious wanted to say it for the sake of the less experienced readers.

FWIW, I am also more comfortable with the older "sound" ones with more starts than the younger ones with less mileage. Courageous Comet had 36 starts, but there was plenty left in the tank!


One of the best ways to ensure a sound horse is to find a trainer who will be honest about any problems the horse might have had....

BeverlyAStrauss
Jan. 13, 2011, 08:02 AM
Of course there is no guarantee about any horse, OTTB or otherwise. I know someone who paid a lot of money for a young homebred WB with a complete history that she had fully vetted and it now has the shivers. Another who fully vetted a horse she bought, and 4 days after bringing him home he colicked and died. My guy has rough looking legs but is as sound as they come. There are horses who have clean legs but a low tolerance for pain- the slightest knock makes them go "ow"! The whole point is to reduce your risk, and having an honest trainer helps.

I am glad this thread is bringing people to the site and to the track- these great horses need second careers in new homes.

As long as we are discussing soundness...As part of the profile of one of the Canter horses, I found this statement to be interesting.


She also has a tiny, tiny, tiny tendon on her left front; it’s never been an issue, she never even needed time off, she’s been racing sound on it for months.

It is my personal experience that "sound" on the track and "sound" for a sport horse are not always the same thing. I am certainly not saying that I expect a horse to come home from the track in sport horse sound condition, but I do think some trainers use the word sound much more liberally than I would, and continue to race a horse where a sport horse might be rested. I also understand that the economic motivation is different. Just thought I would further the discussion.

ETA: I actually brought one home that had pneumonia. Horse was being worked but never had his first start, he just wasn't running well. Horse looked great, well muscled, etc. but when we took him home to our vet, he ended up on a full course of antibiotics.

Love the looks of the Mambo horse. Not looking myself but he sure looks like an athletic fellow. I just changed some listings on the Northern Ohio sight to "free" if anyone is looking. This trainer really needs to cut numbers. She's 100% honest about her horses, they are her babies. One (a grey) was just dropped to $500 (the only one left with a price).

I actually went back and looked at his record, expecting a whole string of last place finished - but looks like he finished in the middle of the pack most of the time, and in one case was responsive enough to his rider to avoid some real trouble unfolding in front of him.

I think "Homer"'s conformation is lovely, lovely, lovely. But I don't know much about obtaining or handling OTTB's, though I read the OTTB threads avidly!

With his price it looks like they are holding out for someone willing to invest in him, which I can completely understand.

For those of you interested in the Beulah horses, I thought I would post a reminder that the track is under quarantine at the moment. Horses can get in to race, but no horses can leave. This is predicted to be the case through the end of the month.

True about the quarantine at the track, however, some of the horses posted in this thread are at Jeff's farm, which is a very short trip from Beulah and not affected by the quarantine issue. If you are interested in a horse, please call and get the latest update.

Thanks!

Should have never opened this thread. Now totally want Homer. He is exactly my type.

GO. GET. HIM.

TODAY.:winkgrin:

Look at his feeeeet! Did you ever? Never saw such great feet still at the track. He's one fine little number. Man o man I bet he can jump. I love him. I wouldn't call him Homer tho, he's waaaaaay more classy.

If I didn't have a secret little project I'd be on my way to Charlestown for Homer. I just think he's all that. Would love to see him in an event home.

Ohhh....the suspense for Homer aka Danglingontheedge. Here he is again (got tired of searching for his listing). Does the lovely halter come too? (Joke).
