Joelito is a handsome Thoroughbred gelding that came to Redwings from the CARMA Placement Program. Joelito was born in Kentucky and has raced on famous tracks including Santa Anita, Gulfstream Park and Churchhill Downs. He raced 13 times with 3 wins and 3 seconds and many were graded stakes races. On July 23, 2016 Joelito was one of three breakdowns at Del Mar where he suffered a torn right front tendon. His owner kept him for a month to stabilize the injury before contacting CARMA.
Joelito has been rehabilitating for 9 months and is now ready to get turned out in pasture. He will spend a few months in pasture before being lightly restarted under-saddle. Joelito is a very sweet horse that loves being with people. He is an old soul and has a very noble presence. Joelito will make a nice light riding or companion horse.
