Redwings Arrival Date: BORN HERE!
Alisage, Dodger’s dam, raced 17 times before her career ended when she bowed her left front tendon. Alisage went on to have 6 foals, one of which was very successful on the track. After being bred to the stallion Dancing Pirate, Alisage was sent to a thoroughbred auction in Southern California, where she was purchased by Redwings. Redwings bought another pregnant mare that day, Swimaj, and both mares were brought to the sanctuary.
Dodger was born at Redwings on March 24, 1994. He was born with slightly contracted tendons, but was other wise healthy. As he grew and became stronger his tendons stretched and his legs straightened up nicely. Dodger grew up with Swimaj’s foal Geronimo and they were inseparable. He has enjoyed life at Redwings for his entire life. Alisage also was very happy at Redwings until her passing a few years ago.
