ARRIVED AT ATR:
Bahamian Squall X Hunter Grace (by First Dude)
Bahamian Benny is a solid, bay, 4 year old gelding who came to us by way of Second Call in New Jersey. He is Florida-bred, by Bahamian Squall and out of a First Dude mare. He raced just one time, on 7/24/2020.
Bahamian Benny was in training in 2021 and 2022, with his last workout on 5/23/2022. We're unsure why he did not race in that time, but he retired with white line disease that was treated on a farm prior to coming to After the Races. While his feet still need a little work, he's definitely headed in the right direction.
Benny has made a great first impression on us here. He's been very easy to handle and sweet, and arrived in great body condition. While he's not expected to have any limitations long-term, our vet said his feet are very sore and need time and TLC to return to full soundness.
He has no other known issues and is available to someone willing to help him with his feet as they continue to adjust.
