The Principle has close to a HALF MILLION DOLLARS in earnings– having raced at tracks all over the US and Canada. His standout year was as a 3 year old racing in the competitive New York Sire Stakes, finishing first or second in many legs and the Final! He has 23 lifetime wins and was much beloved during his entire career. Now it’s time to find The Principle an adoptive home that will shower him with affection for many years to come. He’s been ridden inside and out, stands quietly for mounting and trots under saddle with ease. He is very kind and mannerly for all aspects of his care. He enjoys turnout and is pastured overnight with a small gelding herd. He’s just an awesome horse in every way… but he’s even more remarkable because he’s adapted to living with just one eye.
The Principle’s right eye was removed earlier this year by his faithful owners, so as to not burden an adopter with the cost of the surgery in the future. He’s since bounced back completely, the socket is fully healed and looks great. He’s adjusted very well and will need little in the way of special needs. Like most horses that are only partially visual, The Principle appreciates having an extra close, trusting bond with his handler. A quieter barn, consistent turnout companions and a loving owner is just what this horse needs to thrive in a second career.
