Adoptable Retired Racehorse of The Day - Purely Awesome

Purely Awesome is a handsome 6 year old, 16hh Thoroughbred gelding who is ready for a new career through the New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program. Awesome is currently located in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania with the adoption fee of $400.

Awesome earned a total of $102,652 over 30 starts while he was on the race track. He is now enjoying down time as a riding horse, having been ridden out and about on the farm as well as in the indoor and outdoor rings. Awesome has recently started on canter work and is progressing nicely – a wonderful recovery after ten months on stall rest due to a track injury that left him barely able to walk!

Awesome has a good prognosis and would make somebody a wonderful trail or pleasure riding buddy!

Adoptable Retired Racehorse of The Day - Whistlin Sam

Whistlin Sam is a well-built 6 year old, 16.1hh Thoroughbred gelding who is ready for a new career through Second Stride, Inc. Whistlin Sam is currently located in Prospect, Kentucky and is free to an approved home!

Whistlin Sam retired from the track after not earning his keep at racing. He was vanned from Churchill Downs by his owners so he could enjoy a new career! This lovely gelding was bred by Calumet Farm out of an Unbridled/Seattle Song/Northern Dancer mare.

Whistlin Sam has an old (healed) knee injury (raced sound on it), great feet and bone size. Best suited for pleasure and trail riding. Nice "ride on the buckle" horse. Not spooky, bugs don't bother him, willingly slows when asked.
