Rye Wit – “Toasty”
ARRIVED AT ATR:
Toasty was adopted in February of 2016 by Sandy in Birchrunville, PA. She fell in love with Toasty at first sight and is looking forward to helping his feet adjust and enjoying him as a partner and pleasure horse for many years to come!
This sweet gelding is turning 4 in June and stands at least 16 hands. He arrived to ATR through Parx’s Turning for Home program and was reported to be a well-mannered guy at the track, though a gloriously slow race horse. Never coming in better than 6th in 6 starts, this guy should do much better in a different career. He does have scars on his front ankles, possibly from getting hung in a fence as a youngster, but a full set of x-rays shows no change in the joints. Our vet was very optimistic for his future as a competitive or pleasure prospect.
Toasty is settling in to life at After the Races and we hope to put him back into work around the end of February. In the meantime, he’s available to someone interested in bringing along a nice young Thoroughbred off the track who will enjoy the process. He’s very sweet, well-mannered, with no vices and gets along very well with other horses. He’s currently barefoot and growing some hoof but will likely require shoes in the near future.
