Our resident racing warrior (Flavor) would consider it a personal favor if you could pass the word about Fiesty Day and help him find a nice home asap. ... See MoreSee Less

***War horse really needs to move soon!*** FIESTY DAY 2006 chestnut TB gelding 15.2hh RRP Eligible $750 Located near Opelousas, LA Fiesty Day has just retired sound from racing at 11 years old. He most recently ran in February, and has been consistently in the money most of his career, which was mostly in the allowance- and starter-optional ranks. The same owner has had him for the last 10 years, and he has been well-managed for his racing career. His hocks were injected a couple years ago. He is described as a sweet horse that is very professional under saddle. He has been ridden in a Western saddle, and his owner has led his 4 year old child around on him, too. The owner is downsizing his farm and racing operation, so this guy is being retired to find a riding home even though he is still sound enough to continue running. He is likely the type of horse that needs and wants a job, so would probably do best with a regular riding schedule.

All horses are placed into NON RACING homes and papers (if available) will be sent through as SOLD AS RETIRED FROM RACING
