Breed: Thoroughbred

Redwings Arrival: May 18, 2018

Hero is a beautiful Kentucky bred gelding that came to Redwings from the CARMA placement program.  Hero is stakes placed and ran against the favorite Dortmund at the peak of his career.  Hero broke his maiden in his second race and was campaigning to run in the Kentucky Derby but he didn’t quite make it.  In October of 2017 Hero’s race career ended when he fractured his right front medial sesamoid and had to be vanned off the track.  Hero was stall rested and recently was moved to a small pasture to complete his rehab.

Hero is a gentle and easy going horse.  He has been consistently mellow and easy to handle.  Hero acts more like an old ranch horse than a race horse.  Hero has been lightly started under saddle and will be available through our foster to adopt program in the coming months when he has been returned to full work.   Hero will be suitable for recreational riding. Don’t wait and miss out on the opportunity to foster this amazing horse.
