OK- Its friday afternoon...its been a particularly stressful week at work, so I went cruizing websites again- looking for my next project horse. I found another one (last one got sold as I was driving out to see her- too late!).
Since I know you all are winding down your days at work- take a look!
What do you think of this big guy? I can't seem to steer away from the OTTB's, for some reason I am drawn to them....but that is what I grew up on. This guy is 5- I think he may make a great jumper prospect, so I'm going to go meet him tomorrow. Thoughts?
I do know why he was unraced, I talked to his trainer- he had an undescended testicle- they did not want to cut him because they thought his breeding was so good (that's why I was hoping someone could comment on his pedigree ). They tried to run him, but it ended up bothering him too much- so they knew they couldn't get top dollar for a stud fee without a good record. They cut him at 4, then he trained- but running as a maiden at 5 and investing more money for training didn't seem like a good idea to them because he still was not fast enough for their circuit...and they think he wants to be off the track. So that's his story... Or at least a version of it...
