Last Start: 8/22/18 – RRP Eligible 2020 ONLY

Chickoree is a sweet filly who has just joined our organization. She is retired with history of a bowed tendon RF that has already had more than  a year off to heal. While she can jump, it is advised that she start slow and stay around mid-level work to ensure that she does not agitate her old injury. She also has a cosmetic fault where she was pinfired at some point in her racing career. (Pictured)

Chickoree has no stable or field vices and is kind with other horses so far in the field. She loves people and greets us daily at the gate.

She is not restarted since retiring off the track and therefore is not recommended for a beginner at this time. She has shown an extremely promising personality to be amateur friendly and with a trainer, they could definitely have a once in a lifetime kind of horse.
