    I have a warhorse that when I had him vetted, was the cleanest 8 year old the vet had seen, and he had just raced about a month prior. I think he ran 83-85 times, into the beginning of his 8 year old year.

    I felt pretty confident that he would hold up to dressage if he held up to racing that long.

    I'd pay $3k for the right OTTB, too.

      Samantha37 yes my last warhorse was very clean legged and pretty sound. He had since time off and a light restart when I got him though..

      I have no doubt this horse was going to very pretty clean, besides some back soreness. It really came down to temperament for me, that was the risk that I wasn't willing to take. I doubt I will look straight at the track again. I don't think that type of shopping is for me I'll buy one restarted.

        My Basque was a bit of a warhouse--raced for 5 years in the West. Only 21 official starts but I suspect some time on direct tracks. Awesome horse!

        There is a rescue/farm called Gate to Great in South Dakota. They get war horse thoroughbred, teach them to be ranch horses, herd cattle, whatever. Most love the work and look forward to it. After a year or so, they put them for sale for
        about $7500 or more. Mostly bought by fox hunters, three-day eventers, some dressage riders.
