I have a horse picked out and the vet passed him with flying colors! You should have seen him trot off after the flexions, I couldn't even keep up.
His name is Slide Away, he is 5 and has only raced 12 times and never won. His trainer is a really nice laid back guy so I went down to watch him gallop one morning. Slider walked on the buckle to the track and back to the barn. On the track he was laid back, choosing an easy pace and unperturbed by the other horses around him. He is loose through his back with a lovely even stride. His movement isn't extravagant, but it looks solid.
He already knows how to snuggle and has a pretty great tail, you know the really important things.
His nickname might be White Castle. My dad is driving home to Idaho with me and just happened to buy a trailer on his way here, so we don't even have to find a shipper!
I can't wait to get him home and start riding him! Kentucky here we come!
