I know a couple of people who have gotten OT Arabs as endurance prospects, and one just as a saddle horse. They can be pretty nice horses. One I know of has a chronic back issue, though, so they need a good PPE as much as any other horse off the track.

I broke some racing Arabs years ago. VERY different then most of the other types you see around. There were 2 that belonged to the Sheikh(sp?) that were million dollar horses. I would have been proud to own either one! This guy looks super cute too! The ones I rode had good minds and good work ethics, and didn't have that typical high-headed flightiness. I hope someone gets him!
I've always liked the OT Arabs that pop up on CANTER every so often. And I like this guy. Very classy looking. Very much my type. If I had the cash and the room, he'd be in the stall next to Toby tomorrow.
