Double Trouble Too

We do try hard to give every animal  a chance for a future.        Occasionally there are horses that are special projects that we keep.    This page is dedicated to the horses we have at the farm

 

 Luke

 
   Luke was our pony at the track for many years.  He is 18 now and has severe navicular disease.  He will remain with us, living with his girlfriend (Whip Smart) until his time comes.  We love him and he deserves the life of leisure….  
     
 

 Dry Martini 

 Dry Martini, who earned more than $1.3 million and won three graded stakes during his racing career, has been retired, trainer Barclay Tagg reported over the weekend.

Tagg trained Dry Martini for owner Carol Nyren. A son of Slew Gin, Dry Martini began his career at Calder and ran his last race here on Jan. 29 when finishing fifth in the Sunshine Millions Classic. The most important of his nine victories was also his last, the Grade 2 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park on July 4.

“He’s going to be turned down in Ocala and then go to Penny Wooley, who works for Fasig-Tipton, to start his next career as a fox hunter and show horse,” said Robin Smullen, assistant to Tagg, who helped oversee Dry Martini’s career for the past five seasons. “It’s time now to just let him have fun. He was such a wonderful horse to have around, he tried hard every time he went out there. The most important thing is that he retired sound.”

   Saucey filling in while Strike has a Christmas break… he loves it. When not working at Fair Hill as a pony, he stays at the farm giving lessons to youngsters who would like to gallop some day.  Saucey is a brilliant teacher!
