Official Name: Smart Thinking
Birth Year: 2012 Gender: Gelding. Breed: Thoroughbred


Close X     

Second Chance Thoroughbreds Inc.
Smarty is a 12 y/o gelding who raced 95 times including 22 times in Puerto Rico before being retired to the Caribbean Thoroughbred Aftercare organization. Smarty is full of life, and very happy and willing under saddle. Smarty does have bone chips so would benefit from a joint health product. Smarty does wear front shoes, occasionally pulls one, so he definitely would benefit from a hoof supplement. Smarty's favorite time of day is "grain" time (so that's 3 times a day!), he is a voracious eater and we haven't found a treat he doesn't like. Smarty is turned out all night in the summer, and when the gate opens to come up, he is the first to his stall and shows off (running around, bucking, rearing) until his stall door is opened, allowing him in to eat. Smarty is suitable for lower level disciplines including a little jumping and thankfully shows no bad behavior under saddle. He is great for grooming and loves attention. Smarty is always eager and ready to work despite his 95 races.
