This old man is looking for a family who wants to spoil him and love him and have him as a retired horse in their back yard or light Pleasure horse. He gets along very well with all horses and loves small children and animals.
He was born in Great Britain in 1997, sired by Warning, dam by Sadlers Wells. He raced in France, where he won his maiden, the Prix Ridgway, Credit Mutuel Grand Prix de la Region Alsace, and lastly the Grade 3 Grand Prix de Vichy. A few weeks later he imported to the United States and ran in the Grade 1 Arlington Million Stakes.
He retired from racing and was adopted through New Vocations adoption programas a hunter by a nice gentleman. I bought Chet from him in 2013. He was for a student of mine to show till she left for college 3.5 years ago.
Chet was diagnosed with Lymphangitis in his Left Hind in the late summer of 2015 and it has been a hard battle to get him stable. We fought a good fight for his life and I am happy to report he is now one year stable and doing fantastic now. He is as healthy as he can be. While he is not recommended for any real training or heavy work, he can trail ride still and loves it. He loves the water! If you would like a pleasure horse he’s your man! Movement is the best treatment for his condition. He is easily maintained on 10 smz’s, Equinity, and Outlast daily. He eats 8 pounds of Tribute Seniority feed and 6 flakes grass hay daily.
He’s a retired show horse who is use to being fawned over daily and we really just want the best for his retirement in his later years.
