Re: [RC] so what, after all those years and all those finish lines,made th... - Truman Prevatt

I heard a report on NPR and one of the eventing horses on the US Olympic team in '04 was an off the track TB (too slow), who had ended up in a pack string when he was bought for a few hundred bucks. I guess a good horse is where you find them.

I bought an off the track TB once out of a farmer's pasture for $450. I did a couple of years training, took him to some clinics, showed him a few times and sold him for a nice profit to a young man who sold him a year or so later and then that horse hit the horse version of the big time. He ended up in a hunter jumper barn in Pebble Beach, Ca after being sold for what was in those days a small fortune. The difference in his being a $450 slow race horse and a very expensive three day horse was having the right owner. And it wasn't me.
