Young and willing OTTB prospect
Age: 3 years old | Height: 16 hands | Gender: Gelding | Breed: Thoroughbred
Offered by Maker's Mark Secretariat Center
Lexington, KY
Rehoming Fee: $2000.00

Kobe arrived at the Secretariat Center in November as a youthful 2-year-old, newly retired from racing after failing to hit the board in his 8 starts. Sound and with plenty of life ahead, his owner Dr. Jerry Bilinski of Waldorf Farm in New York knew he would blossom in a different career. Now nearly three (his real birthday is coming up on February 28), Kobe is enjoying this slower-paced life. Though green and with just 2 rides off the track, Kobe is utterly winsome and eager to please. Like most former racehorses, he appreciates being pampered and looks to be an “in-your-pocket” type in the making. Though his conformation might deter those seeking an upper level prospect, he moves very fluidly and sweeping from the shoulder and is an honest, enjoyable ride. He’s a wonderful blank-slate project if you’re a patient person looking for an equine partner for the 2020 Thoroughbred Makeover and beyond. He certainly has the attitude to be a packer for an amateur owner or a younger rider down the road. ADOPTION FEE REDUCED FOR FEBRUARY ONLY. Eligible for the 2020 Thoroughbred Makeover.
