|Courage says "HELLOOOO TRACK HORSE"|
|Yep. Dapple bay and all.|
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Prisoner, pedigree here.
He's a Kentucky-bred 2007 model TB who we put the OT on last Saturday. He's something less than a stunning success on the track, netting just over $4,000 in four years of racing.
Yes, you read that right.
|Looking cute on the back side|
Because she is brave (and knows us really well), Ellie agreed to buy him even though she'd only ever glimpsed his adorable white nose over the stall for like ten seconds one time this summer.
Prisoner (working on the new name, ok?) moved in to Courage's barn for the next month to get nicely restarted. I think he's looking at much the same schedule Courage had--light riding through the fall, winter off, and then getting going for real next spring.
|First ride off the track. HE'S SO FANCY I COULD DIE.|
He's aimed for a dressage/trails/open shows/all around type career and yes, Ellie assures me she will blog about him. Plus she is a kick ass photographer, so expect to be inundated with pro-quality pictures instead of my usual camera-phone business.
|ERMEGERD KISS HIS NOSE ALREADY|
And yes, you can always count on me for Prisoner updates. This is my first time helping out with a resale, and he sort of feels like my little god pony already.
