Tommy / Monaghan Boy - SHOWING

Tommy, who raced under the name Our Paul Thomas (showing as 'Monaghan Boy'), is a 2015 15.3hh stout thoroughbred gelding with a bit of a swayback. He made his way into Ohio after finishing his last race poorly on 11/10/19 and settled in quickly and nicely. Due to the shape of his back, Tommy didn't receive the normal downtime many OTTBs get immediately following track life. He has been slowly restarted and shows promise and style as a hunter.

After moving up to the baby green division in early 2021, Tommy spent much of the year in recovery from surgery after fracturing his RF splint bone in the field, but he bounced back just in time to hit the show ring at the World Equestrian Center the week before heading to the 2021 Retired Racehorse Project's Mega-Makeover. He placed 8th overall in the 2020 show hunter division at the Makeover and is spending the winter working on becoming a more suitable children's mount.

Eclipse - FOR SALE

Eclipse is a 5 y/o 15.0hh grade mare that arrived in April 2020. She is the boss mare of the barn but is also a very sweet and sensitive mare. She was originally quite head-shy, but has learned the value of treats and grooming and has become very friendly! 

She was started w/t/c under saddle over the summer in 2020 and came with sensitive brakes pre-installed. Eclipse is currently working on further understanding of contact, consistency and rhythm staying in front of her rider's leg. She is an interesting combination of spooky and brave - she is fantastic on the trails and enjoys hacking out after her workouts.

Eclipse's dressage training was done in part by a junior rider who started riding her as a very green horse over the summer in 2020. They showed at the training level in dressage in 2021 before her rider left for college. Since then, Eclipse has been improving her training over fences and teaching lessons. She has participated in a few hunter paces and is available for sale to a wonderful home. She would most enjoy a life with a teenager doing a bit of everything - trail riding, showing, jumping and hunting.

Patrick / Confessio - SHOWING

Patrick, who raced under the name 'Good Timing Man', (and showing as 'Confessio'), is a 2016 off-the-track Thoroughbred, FULL brother to our beloved RRP horse, Tommy! Owned and trained by Bacon, Sanford, and Patrick L. Biancone Racing LLC, Patrick earned over $31,000 throughout his racing career, before retiring late 2020. We're very excited about this guy's future!

Patrick had some cursory and sporadic training throughout the first half of 2021 due to time constraints. He finally started full training late summer to prepare for the Makeover, traveling to weekly lessons and doing his first show in September at the Kentucky Horse Park showing in the 2' hunters with both Christina and a junior rider.

 

At the 2021 Mega-Makeover, he competed in the 2021 show hunter class with a fantastic showing and ended 9th overall, despite an extremely limited amount of training. He's spending the winter in light work while we get some other horses moved around and will begin his eventing career in the spring of 2022!
