Newly had a whirlwind day on Friday, November 18, 2016. 9 a.m. breakfast at the racetrack -- at 10:30 had a halter on -- walked into a trailer -- at 11 a.m. was on the freeway and at 11:30 a.m., the trailer stopped.
He was lead out of the trailer and stood amazed. WHOA -- 14 other Thoroughbreds and 1 Quarter Horse were staring at him and eager to meet the new guy!!
Newly is a 2 1/2 year old chestnut, Thoroughbred, gelding. His sire is El Mirage and his dam is Lulita by Olmodavor (who was a son of A.P. Indy). He will have 3 1/2 years more of growing until he stops. We are sure he will get to almost 17h when he is finished. He simply did not want to be a contender on the track so his owner called us to find a new career and a new home for him. He has a very quiet and sweet temperament. He is easily led.
We put him in the area near Reno and Comet. You know what that means....playtime!! Comet and Reno introduced him to cones and Jolly Balls over the fence in just a short time.
Aaah, the joys of youth!
