New Standardbred… Ares Gold

Here’s a quick photo of the new Standardbred that’s just come in…

 

Ares will be looking for a good, permanent home in the near future. He is 11 years old. Raced for a couple of years and has been out to pasture for a year or two. He was not broke to harness until he was five, and never really showed any speed. I think he won a little over $4,000 in his career, so he didn’t pay his own way. He’s sound, with very clean legs. His trainer seems to have been quite fond of him, which is why he kept him for a while after retirement.

I don’t know a lot about his personality yet, as he’s just arrived. But I do know that he’s a very friendly guy. It’s tough to get a photo of him because he follows me like a puppy around the round pen.  I’ll start doing some basic ground work with him in the next couple of days to prepare him for backing.

    Could be Fiddle’s brother, down to the “ho-hum, totally not worried” facial expression!
