Even with this high number of starts in Louisiana claiming races, Rabbit is retired with no unsoundnesses or vices. He does have some “track jewelry,” an osselet Left Front that is outside of the joint and not limiting. (X-rays and vet report available on request)
Rabbit has only had a couple post track rides but has shown off his good brain. He was initially nervous on his first ride but settled down quickly. On the next two rides since he ponied other horses and shows great promise as a steady mount.
Rabbit is very respectful in hand and with other horses. He thinks through scenarios that would overwhelm many horses freshly retired from the track. Due to the condition that his feet were in on arrival, he will need front shoes for 2 or 3 cycles but should have no problem going barefoot. (hoof xrays from intake also available on request)
EDIT: His ears seem a bit too close together when he perks them up making them look similar to a bunny and since has been nicknamed “Rabbit.”
